Spread the word! That’s what the Library Lecture Series is all about. This is a series of adult programs, held at local libraries, informing residents on the Albany Pine Bush Preserve, where we are located, and how important this rare ecosystem is to protect and manage. The program takes participants through a visual presentation of the history, topography, the diversity of plants and animals, seasonal surprises, management techniques, and ways you can help the Albany Pine Bush Preserve. Throughout the program, we encourage open discussion and hands on exploration. We also have joining us at the end of the program is one of our resident turtles. We encourage you to join us for one of the programs and bring along your questions and curiosity.
