JC_Haleakala_5529Jared Clarke is a native Newfoundlander who grew up on the northeast coast of the island and was introduced to the outdoors at a very young age – mostly by his grandfathers. Always a nature enthusiast, he became interested in birds while working for a local conservation group and never looked back. He soon became one of the most avid birders in the province.

Despite his “official” training as a health researcher (PhD Medicine), his love of nature and sharing it with others has consistently led him astray. Jared has led tours big and small across Newfoundland; from historic St. John’s to the ancient Viking settlement of L’Anse aux Meadows on the northern tip of the island and many points in between. Jared has also led tours for some of the best bird & nature tour companies in the business — Eagle Eye Tours, WINGS Birding Tours, Zugunruhe Birding Tours, Wildland Tours, and in partnership with Massachusetts Audubon.

With a broad knowledge of local birds, nature, culture and history, Jared is able to provide clients with an array of experiences … from “hardcore” birding to well-rounded group & family tours with a variety of activities.

Jared lives in St. John’s with his amazing wife Susan and their two fun-loving daughters, Emma & Leslie.
