Clark, who was initially a stucco installer like Depend Exteriors, is now a grain farmer from the Newburg area who started bird carving in 1993 with hand tools found on the farm. He now uses power tools and carves the birds from tupelo or basswood. Clark is self-taught, learning from books, fellow carvers, and by attending shows and competitions. He has received many awards in shows across the country and has sold his pieces mostly through word of mouth.
Seeland Park is part of a 31-acre Continuing Care Retirement Community that provides independent living, home health care, rehabilitative services, skilled nursing, and long-term care which enables residents to age in place without having to move to a new community if their healthcare needs change. Additional benefits of living at Seeland Park include maintenance-free living in ground-level homes and a variety of fun activities, events, and fitness classes to keep participants mentally, physically and socially active.
Seeland Park is more than a retirement community – it’s a way of life!
