Open House and “Beyond Honeybees” Presentation

Join us for a lively presentation on insect pollinators, meet our 4-legged friends from the Philly Goat Project, and enjoy a reception catered by Birchtree Catering during our November 4th Open House!

In celebration of the Year of the Pollinator, Dr. Daniel P. Duran will speak on insect pollinators – the oft-unsung heroes at the heart of many ecological and agricultural systems. He will highlight lesser-known, but critical species, and discuss the ways in which these tiny allies help keep humans alive and in business.

Dr. Duran is a Lecturer at Rowan University, Naturalist at Scotland Run Park in Gloucester County, NJ, and President and co-founder of a non-profit insect conservation organization, The Mid-Atlantic Native & Threatened Insect Zoo (MANTIZ).
