Annual Meeting & Free Lecture
on Juvenile Wood Turtles
with Marnie Miller-Keas

Wednesday, May 14, 2014
Annual Meeting & Elections at 7pm, Lecture at 7:30pm
Katonah Village Library, 26 Bedford Road, Katonah

Join us for our Annual Membership Meeting at 7pm and stay for a lecture by Marnie Miller-Keas on Wood Turtles. Ms. Miller-Keas used radio telemetry to track both headstarted and wild juvenile turtles to determine differences in their movements, growth, and habitat use.

Ms. Miller-Keas holds a B.S. in Biology from Washington State University and a M.S. in Environmental Science from Pace University. She is a Field Biologist at the West Point US Army Garrison Natural Resources Branch, where she monitors and manages wildlife and invasive species, oversees the fishing and hunting program, and assists with forest management. She serves on the Steering Committee for the Lower Hudson Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM) and is a member of the NEPARC (Northeast Partnership for Amphibians and Reptile Conservation) Wood Turtle Working Group. She is also interested in bats, urban ecology, and sustainable agriculture.

Calling All Volunteers!

Bedford Audubon Society needs a few good men and women…to volunteer! Whether your passion is gardening, trail maintenance, education, fundraising, or writing, we have an opportunity just for you. Volunteers make a wonderful contribution to our success, and we couldn't have made it this far without the time and energy of numerous individuals. If you're interested in volunteering, please call Janelle at 914-232-1999 or fill out this application

*The Bedford Audubon chapter covers an area of Eastern Putnam County (Patterson, Carmel, Brewster and Mahopac), and the northeastern section of Westchester County (Yorktown and Somers in the west, North Castle, Bedford, North Salem, Lewisboro and Pound Ridge in the east).
