The Conservancy’s Rich Natural Diversity through a Naturalist’s Eyes

July 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Learn about the natural diversity of the Conservancy property through the four seasons. Over two hundred species of birds have been seen throughout the property. Sixty species of butterflies and dozens of dragonflies among other unusual and exciting creatures. During her presentation, Bonnie will guide you through where and what to look for on your own explorations. There is also an amazing world to discover with the help of  her macro lens:  surprises such as caterpillars that appear to be made of spun glass, rare spiders that hunt their prey with a “bolas” they make each night from their silk, and tiny “goblets” made from fungus.

Bonnie is a passionate amateur Birder and photographer. She has been exploring the natural world of Maryland for three decades. Bonnie has been a long time Howard Bird Club member and worked on many volunteer projects through the years. She has led countless field trips and helped expand peoples knowledge of nature. One of her favorite interests is helping with the “Maryland Biodiversity Project” which is working to record all living things in Maryland. She recently spent two weeks camping in the Arctic Circle and Birding in Costa Rica.
