The Wilds Science Symposium

The Wilds, a place that I've covered numerous times on this blog, is hosting a science symposium on Saturday, March 24, at Muskingum College in New Concord, Ohio. Can't beat the price - it's free! Experts will be speaking about pollinators, prairies, salamanders, grassland birds, and more. Should be a great time, and a very educational experience. The conference site is very near The Wilds, and attendees might consider staying over and birding the area the following day. CLICK HERE for information about birding this area.
