Our featured speaker will be: Dr. John Scott Foster, Executive Director, Wesselman Nature Society
John Scott Foster had the good fortune of being born in and raised in Virginia, claiming his mother's side of the family - the Hunnicutts - who were some of the first to step onto shore in Jamestown more than 400 years ago. He earned a BS in biology at VaTech, and then never wanting to see snow ever again in his life, pursued a Masters in Zoology and a Ph.D. in Science Education/Museum Studies at University of Florida. He is a conservation education migrant worker having worked at nature centers or zoos in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana and New York State (so much for never seeing snow again). Prior to moving to Evansville, Dr. Foster was the executive director of the New York State Zoo in Watertown, NY. For the past 5 years he has served as the executive director of Wesselman Nature Society. John is a husband, father, beekeeper and collector of the macabre.
