Mark Phelan


Mark Phelan, a native Ohioan, began a 39-year love affair with Knox County in 1980, and moved here in 2007. He discovered Owl Creek after planning an event for the Conservancy while manager of the Mount Vernon Country Club, and became passionate about contributing to the Conservancy’s mission. Mark enjoys traveling the world with Jodie, his wife of more than 20 years. His love for the outdoors and nature keeps him busy on weekends planting trees, gardening, hiking or walking his dogs on one of the many great trails in Knox County.
