Lecture

Snowy Plovers

When: Fri., Jan. 18, 7:30 p.m. 2019

On Friday, January 18, come learn about Snowy Plovers from Alexa DeJoannis. Her lecture, entitled “Why Should I Care About Snowy Plovers? A Lo­cal Example of What Species Loss Can Mean,” will enlighten attend­ees about the daily life of federally threatened local plovers, how they fit into their environment, and how that environment affects us. While Snowy Plovers have made frequent appearances in news headlines and government reports, they’re just one of many species living on the beach. Together, these beach deni­zens make the dunes “work.” Alexa holds a master’s degree in wildlife from Humboldt State University. She studied the timing of plover’s winter feather molt and helped monitor their spring/summer breeding. She previously worked in seabird colonies, deserts, and boreal forests. This free public lecture, starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Arcata Marsh Interpretive Center, is sponsored by Friends of the Arcata Marsh. Seating is limited to the first 50 attendees, on a first-come, first-served basis (no longer taking reservations). For more information, call (707) 826-2359.
