Highfield continues “LOOKING UP” in our new environmental science lecture series for Spring 2020!
Highfield Hall & Gardens proudly welcomes the Cape Cod community to gather for our new science lectures on topics that have us “looking up,” and learning about trees, birds, and the stars that surround us. The talks are suitable for people of ALL ages.
Please join us in welcoming Trevor L. Lloyd-Evans, Senior Staff Biologist, Manomet-Leader in Environmental Research, as he discusses birds as indicators of climate change. Manomet is a science-based organization which allows them to engage any audience with the facts about conservation biology. Their bird research uses changes in migration ecology to showcase birds as sensitive indicators of environmental change that alert us to both local and international conservation and climate change effects. A sustainable world requires that people understand the results of our actions, good and bad, plus everyone appreciates birds!
Trevor Lloyd-Evans initial Honours B.Sc. in Zoology from the University of Wales was supplemented by graduate courses in ecology from Boston University. Training in ornithology and field biology at Bird Observatories and the British Trust for Ornithology was supplemented in the USA by banding and census techniques and practical teaching at the undergraduate level at Manomet. Fieldwork from the Arctic to the New World tropics, Europe and Africa then broadened all aspects of his background.
Lectures are FREE for members & $5 for non-members.
