It’s really no surprise that AyoLane Halusky is a St. Johns County Naturalist; his parents were both people in the natural world. His father, Joe Halusky, was a Marine Extension Agent for IFAS/UF and his mother, Marilyn, was a Duval County Extension Agent for 4-H. The family was always out in nature. Halusky grew up in Fruit Cove and attended Julington Creek Elementary for kindergarten through sixth grade and then Nease for seventh through 12th grade. He graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a bachelor of fine arts degree specializing in metalsmithing. He said his personal mission is to build kinship with the Earth, which motivates deep connection with the local environment, sensitizing people to take on an active role in creating positive life journeys and communities. He is single and lives in Elkton.
