Highlands Biological Foundation’s new virtual series: Climate Conversations

In just a few weeks, the Highlands Biological Foundation will host a brand-new spring lecture series titled Climate Conversations!

This series will showcase three field research projects here in the southern Appalachians while highlighting how their findings suggest climate change will impact our region.

From birds to salamanders and everywhere in between, how will climate change affect our beloved Plateau?

People can attend these virtual lectures on Thursday evenings at 6 p.m. beginning May 20. They will be available via Zoom at no charge.
