Come to Black Bayou Lake NWR this Sunday, August 11, for three more certification project presentations. We begin at 2:30 p.m. in the Education Center.
Like the first three, each of this week’s presentations offers a unique look at an aspect of our interests as naturalists. Here they are in the probable order we will see them:
Fungi, More Than Just Mushrooms by Suzanne Dartez – Suzanne will discuss fungal biology and ecology in the Southeastern United States, as well as mushroom identification, something I have heard many of us say we need to know more about!
Welcome to the Northeast Louisiana Ecotheology Forum – by Susan Hoover. This one is all about getting us talking about an ecotheological ethic that we can take back to our respective religious or social organizations, one that we can not only agree upon but act on. Wow! Fascinating.
Urban Ecology and its Effects on Water Run Off – by Kalem Dartez. Did you ever wonder where all that water goes when the skies open and we get a Louisiana deluge? Kalem is going to explain how it works and the consequences. What a startling image!
I’m not going to promise that we’ll be done in an hour. That didn’t work out too well last time! But, hey, there were no complaints then and I don’t expect any now, as these are fascinating topics. But if at the end of the presentations you’re up for a walk in the Refuge, I’m game!
The jury for this set of presentations will be Nova Clarke, Bette J. Kauffman and a third person to be named. I’m working on it! Hope to see you there, and feel free to invite interested friends and family.
