William Davis was born and raised in New York City,
but despite his urban roots, he was a true conservationist.
He spent much of his time camping, hiking, hunting and fishing,
and taught his family to respect and appreciate nature.
Wild Kingdom and National Geographic
were staples at the Davis house.

He convinced Melanie's worried mother to send her and her brothers
to summer camp. The nine wonderful years Melanie spent at Camp Oh-Neh-Tah
played a major role in shaping who she is today.

To thank her father for that gift,
she has planted an Oak tree in his memory.
May it grow and flourish in this beautiful place.
