From tiptoeing turtles to slithering snakes, the reptiles that live in our area are fascinating and full of mystery! Please join us for a presentation by Julie Hart, the Director of Education for the Dutchess Land Conservancy, on the common and uncommon turtles and snakes that share the local landscape with us. We’ll learn about the natural history, biology and ecology of these captivating animals, and talk about ways you can protect and support their populations.

 

About our presenter: Julie Hart is responsible for overseeing the Dutchess Land Conservancy’s diverse public education programs. Connecting people to the land is a keystone of the DLC’s approach to public education, and Julie works collaboratively with many local organizations, farms and schools to present both in-person and online educational programs. With a focus on encouraging good land stewardship, these programs include informal nature walks, land management workshops and webinars, panel discussions, and outdoor explorations and activities. Julie joined the DLC staff in 2007 and previously worked at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies in Millbrook where she served as Research Specialist, studying nutrient cycling in upland forests and the impacts of invasive pests and pathogens on forest health. Julie has a BA in Biology with a focus on Ecology from Bard College, is a certified New York State EMT, and serves as the Dutchess Land Conservancy’s resident expert on ecology and biodiversity.
