An Environmental Success Story: Saving an Ecological Treasure through Resolute Teamwork (Malloryville Fen)


Monday, October 14, 2013 - 7:30pm




Lab of Ornithology, Sapsucker Woods


Bob Beck


Beck will share his experiences in organizing and leading an 11-year fight against proposed gravel mines next to diverse, pristine wetlands. The battle culminated in the establishment of The Nature Conservancy's O.D. von Engeln Preserve at Malloryville, in the Fall Creek area of Tompkins County. Beck’s new book "The Journey at Malloryville Bog: Commitment, Teamwork and Tenacity in Defense of Land and Nature" will also be available for signing.

NOTE: As of the end of September, the Monday night seminars will be streamed live to Lab members (& others) if you are unable to attend in person. Please check the lab link for more info.
