Holcomb's Crossing

A great Roswell GA neighborhood

Malcolm Barnard of Johns Creek, Georgia was selected by the National Wildlife Federation as a Youth Ambassador to participate in Disney’s Kids and Nature Celebration in Orlando.

The Celebration, hosted by Disney April 12-14, 2012, at the Walt Disney World Resort, showcases Disney’s environmental legacy, and will recognize and reward over one hundred youth and five organizations for their work to protect the planet and conserve nature. During the three-day celebration, Malcolm and other youth recognized by Disney, will participate in the first-ever Disney Friends of Change Youth Summit and the World Premier of Disneynature’s Chimpanzee with Dr. Jane Goodall. Malcolm will also be speaking at the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund Awards Ceremony on Backyard Habitats, and will accept the NWF award on behalf of the organization.
Malcolm, currently a tenth-grader at Johns Creek High School, has given back to the community and wildlife since a young age, including oyster restoration projects, sea turtle monitoring, and serving as a youth leader with nature centers. For the past two years, Malcolm has been working on his largest project—making Johns Creek a NWF certified Community Wildlife Habitat and is only 60 backyards away from his goal.

“The youth chosen to receive the Disney Kids and Nature Champions Award represent a committed group of young people who care about protecting the natural world,” said Larry Schweiger, who will also speak at the Celebration in Orlando. “Each of them is an inspiration as they demonstrate how conservation stewardship is alive and well in our nation’s future generations.”
Malcolm started the project in Middle school, where he worked to build a team of NWF community members to work with him to engage homeowners, business, schools, park, and other organizations in the community to create wildlife habitat.

During this process, Malcolm has spent countless hours of service on giving presentations to schools, community groups, and officials at all levels. The team that Malcolm has been working with consists of adults as well as other youth who work together to advance how their community can improve wildlife habitats, both on land and on the shoreline.
