Conservation Conversations: Bugs
5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. • Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center
Export to Outlook | Export to iCal

Join us for a celebration of insects and entomology - the final Conservation Conversations event. To kick off the evening, UTC Professor Deanna Beasley will be presenting on her recently published cicada study: "Urbanization disrupts latitude-size rule in 17-year cicadas." Then we'll step out of the classroom and into the forest for a hands-on discussion with Julia Gregory from the Tennessee Aquarium. Julia will speak about climate change and the future of our relationship with the natural night. Finally, Chris Loizeaux from Blue Ridge Fly Fishing will host an environmentally friendly fly fishing demo at one of our ponds.

Everyone is welcome at this event, but we suggest a donation of $10 per person, which will go towards Reflection Riding's conservation and education efforts. We'll provide beer, snacks, and great conversations with Chattanoogans who care about the health of their local and global ecology.
