May through August 2020
Each year we traditionally run an in-person seminar series from May through August, with topics running the gamut from natural history, environmental management, and natural history to wildlife art. With Covid-19 we have had to reimagine our seminar series, asking our speakers to contribute virtually. There seminars listed below are a combination of pre-recorded seminars posted on our YouTube channel and live seminars. We try to advertise these using social media and our own news feed.
