John R. Roberts, B.S. 1972, M.A. 1974, continues his work at the Natomas Conservancy in Sacramento, California. In his role as CEO of the organization, he runs an organization that designs, builds and manages nature preserves in the 54,000-acre Natomas Basin of Northern California. Again this year, John entertained a number of Geography Department majors and graduates students’ questions and shared counsel on the subject of career strategies. He loved getting a chance to meet with students and several faculty members and staff on a visit this past year, and even participated in a St. George meeting, where the cold beer and bountiful popcorn was good, but the conversation with the St. George members even better.
