All habitats of the Northeast and their inhabitants are currently facing an unprecedented challenge by needing to simultaneously respond to global climate change, invasive species, habitat fragmentation, and increasing deer herds. Which species can be assumed safe? Which species will likely go extinct? And what is the role of humans not only as facilitators of global change but also as stewards of our natural heritage? Dr. Blossey will focus on the interplay of deer, worms, and invasive plants and address what individuals and organizations can do to help conservation efforts.
