Nat Wheelwright, Bowdoin Professor of Natural Sciences and Chair of the Biology Department, will share his observations of how plant and animal populations have changed in recent decades, even in our own backyards. Climate change is often seen as the sole culprit, one that we are helpless to combat. However, even more devastating has been the loss of habitat, and that is something that we may be able to reverse.
Read an interesting article by professor Wheelwright about how he came to love birding, and the changing bird populations.
This event is part of our ongoing series, A Local Look at Our Changing Climate, in collaboration with the Cathance River Education Alliance (CREA). This series explores the local impacts of a changing climate, as well as local solutions and adaptations as seen by your neighbors and in your own back yard.
Venue: Topsham Public Library
