"Pleasant Surprises...Managing Wildlife in an Urban Environment"
John Connors, North Carolina Museum of Natural Science

  • Thursday, March 29, 2007 – 7:30 pm9:00 pm

Sometimes it's the little things that make life worthwhile. John Connors remembers when he first heard the call of the gray tree frog resonating from atop a loblolly pine in our yard...and he knew the song was borne of tadpole stock he had released the year before. How long had it been since that sound had flavored the night air of his downtown neighborhood?

Learning to live with and restore nature around our urban dwellings can be complicated, but with a little research, imagination, and luck it can be done. Included are tales of the attempts of some local landscape pioneers trying to reintroduce wildlife in our urban environment.
