Welcome to CFI's monthly lecture night series!

This month, our speaker is Dr. Walter Carson, biologist from the University of Pittsburgh. Dr Carson is a field biologist currently heading a research project in the Harvard National Forest, which is where he was unexpectedly detained and so was unable to make it to our Darwin Day celebration. His talk will be on the damage being done to our Eastern deciduous forests by both herbivores such as white-tailed deer, and invasive pests. In light of the controversy over the deer herd in Mt Lebanon, I think is a very timely topic.

If you have speaker suggestions and/or ideas that are in keeping with our mission, please feel free to email your suggestions to [masked]

See you there!

P.S. We usually head to Ali Baba's on nearby Craig Street at 5:30 p.m. for a pre-lecture dinner. Please leave a comment below if you are coming to dinner so we can include you in the reservation. Thanks!
