Jefferson County Conservation New Naturalist

posted on 11/14/23


Jefferson County Conservation's new naturalist Austin Roe will begin on Monday, November 27th, 2023. 

'My name is Austin Roe, I grew up in Eddyville, IA hunting, fishing, and just enjoying being outdoors. After high school, I spent four years in the Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton as a combat engineer. I then went to school at Kansas State University (Go Wildcats!) where I earned my degree in wildlife ecology and management. As I learned more about animals and natural systems, my love for the outdoors grew and I decided that I wanted to be able to share my knowledge with others so that they can enjoy and appreciate nature in the same way. This is what led me to want to be a naturalist. I’m excited to be joining the staff here in Jefferson County and look forward to sharing my love for the outdoors with you.' Austin


The Jefferson County Conservation Board meets monthly on the last Wednesday of the month. Meetings are held at the Jefferson County Park Nature Center at 4:00pm. The public is welcome to attend.
