Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy’s 21st Annual Meeting
May 21, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Each year Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy’s annual meeting provides an opportunity for members to gather, celebrate another year of accomplishments, and hear an interesting guest speaker. This year we are excited to have T’ai Roulston, curator of the State Arboretum of Virginia and a research associate professor in the Environmental Sciences Department at the University of Virginia. Roulston will be presenting a program called “Understanding, appreciating, and conserving Virginia’s wild bees.” While the European honey bee is the best known of our pollinators, there are nearly 1,000 species of bees in the eastern United States, many of which play an important role in pollinating crops, gardens, and the wild plants that delight us and support our animal populations. His talk will describe the life history of some of the most prominent of our wild bee species, the roles they play, and the threats they face in the modern landscape.
In addition, author Maria Gianferrari will be on hand to provide a short family program on coyotes and discuss her new book, Coyote Moon. Book sales and signing will be available at the event. If you’re not yet a member or need to renew, please do! We really need you as a current member. The annual meeting also includes light refreshments; award presentations to science fair winners, Roger Tory Peterson Young Naturalists, and our volunteer of the year; and a short business meeting. Registration required. Questions: Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
