Field Research in the Marble Mountain Wilderness
Presented by Dr. Robert F. Fernau

Thursday, March 11th at 7:30pm

Due to ongoing pandemic concerns, our general meetings and program will take place at 7:30 p.m. via the following Zoom Invite Link:

Dr. Rob Fernau will give a talk about his long-term field research project in the Marble Mountain Wilderness in northwestern California where he has been researching the interactions between butterflies, plants, and relevant facets of their environments since 1984.

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, 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!
