From Andy Dalton:
Hi, all. I don't know how many of you know about the soon
upcoming Mountain Biodiversity Adventure weekend at Blackwater Falls
State Park June 22 - 24th. It should be great. If people are interested
in volunteering to help, they need to contact Paulita Cousin, park
naturalist at 304-259-5216 or Paulita.L.Cousin@wv.gov.
If people are going, but not signing up for the package which includes
meals and lodging, they suggest a $5 to $10 donation per class. Paulita
would like to know numbers of non-package people who will be attending,
so if people plan to go and not stay there, please drop Paulita a note.
The package price is $203 per person based on double occupancy. This
should be a great conference with Dr. Tom
Pauley (amphibians & reptiles), Dr. Zac Loughman (crayfish), Tree
and Plant ID (Alan Miller), Bees, Beetles and the Buzz about Pollinators
(Emily Grafton), Geology of WV (Ken Ashton), and Butterflies (Destiny
Phillips) and Golden eagles with Trish Miller. Bird walks are also
Attached are a narrative from Paulita and a flyer with registration form.
