____________________________

Because the Chapter is still observing the COVID-19 directives to avoid large gatherings of people, we’ll have a presentation using Zoom in lieu of a regular chapter meeting at the Pacific Grove Museum. You can watch the lecture at home on your computer.

The Zoom link will be posted on the website, https://chapters.cnps.org/montereybay/ and sent a day or two in advance in an eblast. The Zoom presentation will start at 7:30 and you’ll need to login to the web link with the instructions that will be available on the Chapter website and sent in the eblast. As there is a waiting room at our Zoom meeting, please come early!

**************************

Dr. Fernau is an ecological Biogeographer with degrees in Biology, Ecology, and Geography, but despite all that formal schooling, his real teacher is the Marble Mountain Wilderness. He will introduce his case history of this extraordinarily diverse wilderness and assess its environmental health.
