Visitors to CFAES’s Farm Science Review, set for Sept. 18-20, can hop a free shuttle to the Gwynne Conservation Area, pictured below, home to nearly 70 acres of ponds, woods, prairies and a stream.
Called the Gwynne for short, it’s a perfect setting for more than 50 free talks and demonstrations on conservation, including trees, fish, soils, grasslands, water and wildlife.
Topics will range from bees to bats, chainsaw safety to year-round grazing, harvesting timber to making maple syrup.
One demonstration will even feature “electrofishing,” a method used by scientists to sample the fish in a lake or stream.

Register by this Friday, May 22, for a May 29 workshop on the Endangered Species Act. The workshop is for natural resource professionals who work with the act — and with endangered species like the Kirtland’s warbler shown here. CFAES scientist Jeremy Bruskotter, one of the event’s organizers, said the Endangered Species Act is more important than ever due to persistent threats like climate change and new issues such as white-nose disease in bats. Congress passed the act in 1973. Details and a link to online registration. (Photo: Joel Trick, USWFS.)
