Bryan Nadeau is the new vice president of conservation attractions for the Johnny Morris Foundation

The Convention & Visitors Bureau extends a welcome to Bryan Nadeau, who has joined the Johnny Morris Foundation as vice president of conservation attractions.

In the newly created role, Nadeau is leading the operation of Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum and Aquarium and the 10,000-acre Dogwood Canyon Nature Park in Lampe; both are not-for-profit attractions. He will also provide oversight for Top of the Rock Ozarks Heritage Preserve in Ridgedale.

Nadeau is a 22-year veteran of SeaWorld and Busch Gardens, most recently serving as vice president of operations overseeing three properties including SeaWorld Orlando, Discovery Cove and Aquatica waterpark. He has also had leadership roles at Busch Gardens Williamsburg and the Anheuser-Busch corporate office in St. Louis.

Nadeau will contribute his expertise to Morris’ other nature-based attractions including Top of the Rock Ozarks Heritage Preserve, home to the Lost Canyon Cave Trail, a self-guided electric cart tour through an Ozarks landscape and cave, and The Ancient Ozarks Natural History Museum, featuring one of the most significant collections of Native American artifacts ever assembled, and the widely anticipated opening of “The Cathedral of Nature,” a 300 million-year-old geological natural wonder.
