Lancaster Conservancy Launches Nature Hour
The Lancaster Conservancy will launch Nature Hour, a virtual lecture series that is free or by-donation to support the Conservancy’s ongoing efforts to educate the community. The lectures will be offered every other Wednesday through July 29, from 6 to 7 p.m., beginning on June 3 with An Underwater Tour of Riverland Streams with Keith Williams from Freshwater Journeys. The presentation will feature Williams’ explorations of streams located in the Susquehanna Riverlands region of Lancaster County and will include his own incredible underwater photography.
“Like the rest of our community, the Conservancy has had to shake up how we go about our work during this crisis,” says Fritz Schroeder, senior vice president of community impact. “A virtual lecture series allows our members, and those curious about a specific subject, an opportunity to learn about nature without leaving their homes. Presentations will focus on subjects near and dear to the Conservancy’s heart: clean water, native plants and pollinators, wildlife, land protection and forest restoration. We’re excited to feature many of our local partners and connect with our community in this unique way.”
