Nature Events Being Held

Dr. Charles Clarkson, professor of biology, ecology and conservation at Roger Williams and Salve Regina universities, will present an interesting lecture on Sunday, April 6, from 2-4 p.m. at Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge. Timed for spring migration, the talk is titled; “How Things Change, How Birds Cope with a Changing Planet.” This is the second installment in a three-part series that Clarkson is presenting.

Clarkson is well published and is highly respected for his work in the fields of biology and conservation, as well as his work with local wildlife enthusiasts and the Audubon Society of Rhode Island. His lectures are informative, entertaining and very educational.

The Norman Bird Sanctuary has re-scheduled the “Eyes on Amphibians” program originally set for March 28, to Friday, April 11, from 5:30-7 p.m. due to inclement weather. The program is appropriate for ages 8 and up and will begin with a brief indoor education program, followed by a walk to Red Maple Pond to listen for frog calls and search for frog’s egg masses.
