Nature Programs To Host Virtual Summer Lecture Series Beginning May 21

Join the Nature Programs to learn more about wildlife, biodiversity and open space during these educational online programs.

Wildlife takes center stage in a summer series of webinar presentations. The Mercer County Park Commission Naturalist Department will bring online programming right to your home, focusing on wildlife that affects our lives, even in an urbanized environment. These programs are free; registration is required.

These one-hour webinars will be presented by naturalists from the Park Commission and researchers from the Conserve Wildlife Foundation in partnership with the Wildlife Center Friends and funding provided by PSE&G. Programs are suitable for teens and adults.

The Virtual Summer Lecture series will take place from 7 to 8 p.m. and conclude with a Q&A session for the public to ask questions about any of the topics after each program. Participants will be able to submit questions in advance of the program to krypkema@mercercounty.org. Questions can also be asked through the chat feature in the webinar.
