Mississippi Wildlife Rehabilitation Inc is excited to welcome Alan Parks and Dane Chamberlin as the newest members of our Board of Directors.
Alan Parks and his wife Alishia moved to Desoto County 10 years ago having been in Memphis since 1993. His son, Harrison, and daughter, Noa, graduated from Lewisburg High School.
He received a B.S. in Geoscience from the University of Tennessee at Martin and a Masters of Engineering (Mining) from the University of Missouri‐Rolla.
Alan is the VP of Resource Development and Mining with Memphis Stone & Gravel Company where he has worked for twenty-four years. In this role, Alan serves as an exploration geologist, mining engineer, and environmental manager. He has especially enjoyed the opportunity to lead field trips and mine tours, having taught thousands of students, educators, researchers, and “rockhounds” about the mining cycle, construction resource economy, and local geology.
Alan says he is “excited to help MWR utilize its impressive list of natural resource assets and promote its expertise in caring for injured wildlife”. He looks forward to helping MWR become a regional leader in providing better access to wildlife education and outdoor activities.

He is an avid outdoorsman and says “I wanted to join MWR because I believe in the mission of MWR which is education, preservation, rehabilitation of native species in MS. As a board member, I hope to help grow the organization and advance the great work that we do with our education programs. I believe that we have a great future ahead with ample opportunities to promote the organization and our mission.”.
