Our Speaker in Grand Canyon, 2011

Our program for  October is naturalist, world traveler, and photographer, Roger Zessin  


Roger Zessin has traveled the world extensively. After a life-changing trip
to Africa in 1990, he became a wildlife/travel photographer. His appreciation
of wildlife has deepened dramatically over the last 22 years. He has created a
museum quality traveling exhibit called the Faces of Bali. Having given more than 100 slide show presentations of wildlife, landscapes and unique cultures to various nature clubs, civic clubs, colleges and museums, we have a treat in store in having Roger speak to our group.

For those of you who are amateur photographers, here is another exciting Texas treat...a photo contest.  In 2000, Roger Zessin formed a non-profit group with a group of volunteers in the 10 counties surrounding Corpus Christi, Texas, and created the $90,000 Coastal Bend Wildlife Photo Contest. This program provides economic incentives to landowners through a richly funded contest with prize money equally shared between photographers and landowners. It became the 2nd richest wildlife photo contest in the world. he will be sharing some of the winning photos with us at our meeting.  An offshoot, "Kritters 4 Kids" is an elementary school education program that has become a powerful medium for teaching school children about local wildlife, ecosystems, and habitat management.

Roger presently lives in and calls Austin, Texas his home and takes groups on
faraway adventures to New Zealand and Bali.
