About the Instructor or Presenter:

John is one of the leaders in Wake Audubon’s on-going efforts to educate the public about Chimney Swifts and to raise funds for construction of the Chimney Swift Roosting Tower at Prairie Ridge. He retired from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, where he was a tireless advocate for environmental education (especially birds) since his start in 1997. He has also been a recipient of the Audubon North Carolina Bird Lore Conservation Education Award, which pays tribute to an individual’s exceptional efforts to educate the public about birds, their habitats, and inspiring conservation of the special landscapes we share with all wildlife.
