Don has helped plan many aspects of the HDC meetings and at times has offered presentations in underwater geophysical survey techniques and sediment sampling procedures. He has managed communications and the HDC website for much of his time on the Board. He also has performed treasurer duties and can normally be found at the registration desk at most HDC SETAC meetings.

Don holds and maintains several training certificates including 40 Hr. and 8 Hr. OSHA, First Aid/CPR, Hazmat Shipping and a US Coast Guard Captains License (OUPV – Inland). He earned his days on the water on a boat primarily by working with Aqua Survey, Inc. and performing sediment vibracoring, water sampling or supporting underwater geophysical surveys. He has also supported field activities for underground utility markouts, seismic surveys, oversight of geothermal drilling and performed hydrographic surveys on the water.

Don Nazario lives in Lancaster Pennsylvania and during the Winter months he enjoys telemark skiing with his wife and two teenage daughters. Warmer months finds him hiking local trails, road biking through Lancaster County or working to maintain his 124 year old farmhouse and property. He also shares his home with 4 cats - two domestic short hair cats and two mainecoon cats.
