Please join us for a very special presentation on Tuesday, February 19th by the National Audubon Society Vice-President, Brian Rutledge, whose presentation will be entitled: Holding Our Own: Community Conservation.
Together, we will learn about the last fifty years of conservation engagement for endangered species and about the importance of our sagebrush ecosystem. This is a talk not to be missed by anyone who cares about flora and fauna in our region.
Brian is the Director of Audubon’s Sagebrush Ecosystem Initiative. He has served as an instructor and interpreter since childhood, leading eco-tours to many corners of the globe. He served for five years as the president/chief executive officer of Zoo New England and was executive director of the Maryland Zoological Society for thirteen years. He has designed and developed entertaining and exciting exhibits, interpretive graphics, and innovative, interactive devices for the general public. For many years, Brian and his wife Kathleen have made their permanent home on the Front Range of the Rockies. Fascination with cutting horses, sled dogs and cattle has melded well with their love of the outdoors.
Join us at the Laramie County Library at 7:00 p.m. for the presentation (Sunflower Room, 3rd floor). Those who would like to have dinner with the speaker should contact Barb Gorges at 307-287-4952. Dinner will be at 5:00 p.m. at The Albany Restaurant.
