Scott Shalaway – Nature Writer and Bird Biologist – to Visit RTPI

Posted on Sep 18, 2017

Scott Shalaway, Ph.D. is a certified wildlife biologist, ornithologist, birder, and nature writer.  He holds degrees in entomology (University of Delaware), biology (Northern Arizona University), and wildlife ecology (Michigan State). Shalaway has written a weekly nature column for newspapers (including Jamestown’s Post-Journal where it appears every Saturday) since 1986, and has hosted a weekly nature-themed radio show entitled Birds and Nature since 1992.

On Wednesday, September 27th, Shalaway will be in the Jamestown area to deliver a series of nature-themed programs. At 7pm, Shalaway will give a talk at the monthly meeting of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute’s Ornithological Club. Shalaway’s work emphasizes the interconnectedness of people and the natural world, and his talk will focus on a topic that links people and conservation on a daily basis; bird-friendly coffee. This program will be free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served. Shalaway will also visit the JCC campus earlier in the day where he will deliver additional lectures and connect with the academic community.
