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 reimagined our seminar series in 2020 and again in 2021, 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 where folks may register for the talks. Talks are typically at 7PM on the dates specified.
