January speaker & Topic:

Wild Love: Public Displays of Affection in Nature

Liana Vitali, a naturalist and educator at Jug Bay Wetlands Sanctuary, offers a tasteful look into the world of animal and plant romance. In stories of fascinating courtship and reproduction strategies from near and far, Liana celebrates the signs of spring attraction found in aerial displays by the American woodcock, underwater sperm transfers between salamanders, and trickery among male nursery spiders designed to win female hearts, to name just a few of the ways the natural world keeps buzzing.
