Conservation Conversations 2022

Free and open to the public, invite a friend. Enjoy hearing from our ecological experts from the comfort and safety of your home. This winter’s talks start at 7:00pm and will be streamed live via Zoom webinar.

For the safety of our community, BMAP has decided that the first two of our winter presentations will be streamed as a live Zoom webinar only. We still hope to gather and celebrate our last meeting on February 17th both in-person at the Mount Horeb Senior Center and virtually. We will send out a timely update closer to the date. 

Check out each event for more information and to RSVP. Webinar attendees will receive a virtual link in the RSVP confirmation.
