Winter Lecture Series – Beavers
A series of indoor lectures during the colder months.
Join us for a series of informative lectures on the first Wednesday of each month from December through March. The lectures will be held indoors at the HOA clubhouse in the residential neighborhood that Leopold’s Preserve surrounds. Each features a special guest speaker who will discuss a topic relating to the natural world.
December 7: Dave Larsen, an avid birder, will discuss resident and migratory birds in our region.
January 4: Valerie Huelsman, an Environmental Educator with the Virginia Cooperative Extension, will discuss the natural water cycle, what stormwater is, and management strategies that can help to reduce pollution. Her talk will be followed by an optional walk through the Preserve.
February 1: Alison Zak, founder of the Human Beaver Coexistence Fund, will discuss beavers’ role in our ecosystems.
March 1: Nancy Vehrs, president of the Virginia Native Plant Society, will discuss native plants in our region.
