When: Fri., May 8, 7:30-9 p.m. 2015
Join Redwood Region Audubon Society for a free presentation by Dr. Greta Wengert, assistant director and senior ecologist for Integral Ecology Research Center. She will talk about the direct ecological effects of marijuana cultivation on forest wildlife and ecosystems in California's national forests. She will address some recent discoveries of the more indirect and covert environmental effects of these activities, ranging from poisoned wildlife to contaminants in soil. Dr. Wengert will highlight the opportunities for estimating effects across the landscape and the extent of this egregious problem; and discuss short-term solutions. Bring a mug for coffee and come fragrance-free.
