2016 Lecture Series Continues
1 PM in the Visitor Center
SATURDAY, February 13, 2016 AT 1 PM:
Presenter: Todd Pover, Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey
Topic: Piping Plovers: Along the Flyway from New Jersey to the Bahamas
Join us for a free presentation about piping plovers--one of the state's most critically endangered bird species. Learn what is being done to protect and monitor them locally along the Jersey Shore, as well the fascinating story of their annual migration to and from the Bahamas. Our speaker has "greeted" them at both ends of their journey as part of his conservation research and outreach.
Todd Pover is the Beach Nesting Bird Project Manager for the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey. In that capacity he oversees the statewide monitoring, management, and research for at-risk shorebird species, such as piping plover, least tern, black skimmers, and American oystercatcher. He has been helping protect these species for over 20 years in New Jersey, and more recently has had a role in flyway scale conservation, in particular in the Bahamas.
Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 1 PM Presenter: Trish Schuster
Topic: "The Jersey Shore and the Middle Kingdom: closer than you think"
"Part adoption story, part travelogue, part cautionary environmental tale, participants will be transported to the Middle Kingdom of China and share the experiences of the presenter and her husband when they traveled to China to adopt their daughter. In addition to creating their family, the Schusters were struck by a number of environmental issues during their two week stay. And lest we think these issues are only China's problem, the presenter will identify parallels between environmental concerns here and in Asia."
Trish is a popular speaker throughout the Jersey Shore and has given workshops to educators at the Tuckerton Seaport for many years.
