Participants are invited to join us for a series of talks by local guest speakers covering a wide variety of nature-related topics. We are excited to continue this series with the below February dates!
Tuesday, Feb. 20th - Colleen Wolpert (Naturalists' Club of Broome County): "Unicorns, Tigers and Bears Oh My!: Local Moths and their Caterpillars."
Lepidoptera enthusiast, Colleen Wolpert, will introduce you to some local moths and their caterpillars. Many are named after other animals. Day-flying moths can be as common as butterflies. There are wingless moths, too. Tigers have stripes and spots and bears come in many different colors. Moths can be purple, green, or pink! Unicorns are common, but use camouflage as a caterpillar and as a moth. You will learn when and where to find moths and caterpillars as well as how to help them to produce future generations. Come with questions and plan to join us for a Moth Night at CVSP in the future.
Wednesday, Feb. 14th - Nirav Patel (Binghamton University): "Urban Ecology and Creative Place-making Solutions in the Anthropocene"
NIRAV PATEL RESCHEDULED TO THURSDAY, MARCH 28TH!
