The last of four presentations in our popular Eco-Forum is scheduled for April 14 when Western Connecticut State University ecologist Mitch Wagener will talk about “Climate Change and its Effects.”
Wagener, who earned his doctorate in soil ecology during a 13-year stay in Alaska, teaches climate ecology, entomology, and related courses at WCSU in Danbury. His varied research interests include the ecology of soil and aquatic invertebrates, the ecology of our changing climate, and the impact of historical events on the environment. His current research focuses on the ecologies of three Connecticut lakes—Candlewood, Lillinonah and Zoar—with particular interest in invasive zebra mussels infesting two of these lakes.
His presentation will be at the Buchanan Auditorium of the Mansfield Public Library on Route 89 in Mansfield. Doors will open at 6:45 p.m. with the presentation starting at 7.
This final Eco-Forum event is open to both Joshua’s Trust members and non-members. For those who haven’t already paid for their four-event package, costs for Trust members are $5 per presentation and $8 for guests.
Attendees must pre-register using forms available Eco-Forum-Registration 4.
