June Artist in Residence

Matthew Wilgo is an avid ‘enthusiast’ photographer with a love of nature, especially at National Wildlife Refuges, and state and national parks. He advocates for environmental conservation and volunteers for plover warden duties each year. On any given weekend you are likely to find him out for a stroll, camera or binoculars in hand. Whether it is blistering hot or freezing with snow, Matt always finds joy in nature.

Matt is a scientist and general supervisor for a local cord blood bank and reproductive bank. He also volunteers his time for the Association for the Advancement of Blood and Biotherapies, an organization dedicated to the quality and safety of blood and cellular therapies in the field of science and medicine. Through AABB he gets to travel the world, helping to promote good scientific and medical practice.

Matt loves to share his photos and through that art to help educate people about our need to protect the natural world. He believes that it is up to each of us to make sure Earth’s beauty and wonder remain for all future generations.
