About Us

Scott Tucker is a native of Connecticut, where he graduated from Guilford High School in 1982 and received a BS in Studio Art from Southern Connecticut State University in 1993 with a specialization in Photography.

Scott uses a collection of amphibians and reptiles in his presentations in schools, nature centers, and other places, to help teach Connecticut residents about the amphibians and reptiles native to the state and help people encounter these animals sometimes for the first time. In November 2007 Scott distributed an special episode for the Long Island Sound Fund to every sixth grade science teacher
in the state.

Scott is conductiScott Tucker and his familyng a herpetology survey of all Haddam Land Trust land: a project that will take several years to finalize. He is collecting GPS data and compiling photographic evidence of the herpetofauna found in Haddam Land Trust property to establish a benchmark for future naturalists to gauge future changes.

In 2004 Scott co-produced a documentary called “Snakes of New England” where many myths about snakes were dispelled, along with the identifying and describing of venomous versus non-venomous snakes that helped reduce the confusion surrounding Timber Rattlesnakes and Northern Copperheads.

Finally, Scott created and currently hosts his television program called “Expedition New England”. Using his training as an artist and photographer, Scott documents the adventures of his family as they scuba dive the oceans and comb the front yards, backwoods and swamps of New England looking for wildlife.

He takes the audience on a journey that explores all forms of life from earthworms to blue sharks, from spotted green tiger beetles to birch trees. Scott presents the plants and animals in such a beautiful way that New Englanders are inspired to appreciate the magnificent ecosystem in their own backyard. And with this appreciation he hopes our citizens will confront the issues facing our local flora and fauna, and take the steps needed to preserve and protect our land for future generations.
