Our first “Flamingle Friday” this season takes place Friday ~ December 6th at 5 pm.

The program starts at 5:00 for the meet and greet with Scott and hand-crafted beer and appetizers in the Gardens. Scott’s program will start promptly at 6:00 pm in the Everglades Wonder Gardens new Robert and Karin Moe Tea House. 
 
 
Momentum Brew House has brewed a special “Wonder Gardens IPA” and light hors d’oeuvres will be served.  Scott will be sharing his plans for the Environmental Education Programs at the EWG and his love of animals and the environment that brought him from the Texas Coast where he grew up, to his travels around the world.  He is well known for captivating an audience with his stories – often being stopped on the street by guests who have seen his educational presentations at the Naples Zoo  – so be sure to grab a ticket to this event!

 
 

About the speaker: 
 
 Scott Johnson was born and raised on the Texas Coast in a family that spent most of their time in the “Great Outdoors”. Growing up, Scott always knew he wanted to work with animals and after graduating from Texas A&M University, Scott made that goal a reality when he started his career as a zookeeper. Now, nearly a decade later, he finds himself as an Environmental Educator sharing his love of the natural world with us!
