Meet a Scientist! Biologist Lowell Spring, Ph.D. Western Oregon University

The Geese in Our Valley

 

Dr. Spring will discuss a variety of questions: Why are there so many races of Canada Geese? Which of these races has become super abundant while another has drastically decreased? What are the reasons for these changes? What role has the Endangered Species Act played in determining how our geese are hunted? At what level of evolutionary divergence should we be protecting wild populations?

    Hi Beverly. Sorry, I had not noticed this was not updated with details. Dr. Spring will talk about the Endangered Species Act and how it is affecting species in the Valley. He's one of the best naturalists I've met, very knowledgeable about conditions in the Valley. This should be a colorful and descriptive presentation. Bring your questions about our natural ecosystems!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
