PAST EVENT: Love Nature?
Do you love nature but have second thoughts about bees, spiders, snakes, or foxes? Do you feel a bit queasy by their presence in our natural landscapes, even while supporting conservation of our natural areas?
Biologist Kerry Wixted, of the Wildlife and Heritage Service, Maryland Department of Natural Resources, discussed these critters and more at the FOSC zoom event on Tuesday, July 21.
We made two changes to the format this time around: we encouraged everyone to join in at 7:00pm for socializing by Zoom, and we opened up the discussion with the event speaker to verbal as well as chat discussion/questions.
Kerry Wixted is an education and outreach specialist with the in the Wildlife and Heritage Service, Maryland Department of Natural Resources. She holds a bachelor’s degree in wildlife and fisheries management from Frostburg State University and a master’s degree in biology from West Virginia University.
Our thanks to Michael Wilpers, Natural History Committee chairperson, for arranging and hosting the event.

PAST EVENT: Surprises in the Park
Surprises in the Park! We’re all walking, biking, scootering in the park, but did you know how many different kinds of leaves and nuts and other natural things you can find if you look carefully?
Kit Gage led a group of children and their adults through surprises awaiting us in Sligo at this time of year and different ways to think about them.
Our thanks to Kit Gage for the presentation.
