PROFESSIONAL AWARDS

ENTOMOLOGICAL FOUNDATION MEDAL OF HONORThis award is the highest award presented by the Foundation and is given only to those who have attained preeminence in the field through outstanding contributions. Dr. John Acorn was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1958 and has been fascinated with animals since a very early age. He still lives in Edmonton, with his wife Dena and their two sons, Jesse and Benjamin. John is perhaps best known as the writer and host of the television series Acorn, The Nature Nut, a family-oriented, how-to-be-a-naturalist show. He also hosted Twits and Pishers, a travel show for bird watchers, as well as the gallery videos of the Royal Tyrell Museum of Paleontology. John has written 17 books, including many well-received field guides, and he produces a regular column, The Terminal Segment, for American Entomologist. These days John teaches at the University of Alberta and continues his involvement with public communication in a variety of forms. John is the recipient of NSERC's Michael Smith Award for Science Promotion, the University of Alberta's Distinguished Alumni Award, two "Rosies" (as Best Host in the Alberta Motion Picture Industry Awards), and two nominations for Canada's national television award, the Gemini. The Royal Society of Canada, the Canadian Society of Zoologists, and the Entomological Society of Alberta have all recognized his contributions to public education.
