Fall Ecology Walk with Nat Wheelwright

November 9 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Free

Nat Wheelwright, Bowdoin Biology Professor Emeritus, will lead a fall ecology walk at CREA on Nov. 9 from 9:30-11:30 am.

This will be an opportunity to identify woody plants by their twigs and learn about common mosses and lichens, shelf fungi, resident birds and whatever else the group happens upon. Professor Wheelwright will also discuss how animals and plants are adapted to survive our cold Maine winters.

Professor Wheelwright is co-author (with Bernd Heinrich) of The Naturalist’s Notebook, and producer of the Nature Moments video series. 

The group will meet at the CREA Ecology Center at 9:30am. Please come prepared to walk on trails a quarter mile, rain or snow or shine! Hunting is not allowed in the Preserve, but wearing an article of blaze orange is recommended.

This is a FREE event and is open to CREA Members and the community.

Registration is required to attend. To register email – crea@creamaine.org
