"Climate Change and Biological Conservation in Georgia."

Mark your calendars! August 25th, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm, Richard B. Russell Special Collections Library auditorium, UGA Campus

University of Georgia Josiah Meigs Distinguished Professor Dr. James W. Porter will discuss the phenomenon of climate change as it relates to conservation here in Athens-Clarke County and Georgia. He will describe the presence of three closely-related species of Pearly Eye butterflies within the Tallassee Forest, a rare phenomenon.

Dr. Porter’s talk is a part of “John Abbot: Early Georgia’s Naturalist Artist,” an exhibit of rate watercolors and other works from the 18th Century. Friends of the Georgia Museum of Natural History co-sponsors Dr. Porter’s talk. Lecture will be preceded by a reception with coffee and cookies, and is free and open to all.
