Coming to WILD READ on July 22: "Gathering Moss"
Our Guest Moderator Will Be Conservation Biologist Roxanne Bogart
Roxanne Bogart is a conservation biologist and writer with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Migratory Bird Program in its Division of Bird Habitat Conservation in Arlington, Virginia. She is the editor of the All-Bird Bulletin, the newsletter of the U.S. North American Bird Conservation Initiative that presents the work of bird and habitat conservationists from across the continent and beyond. She earned a B.A. in biology from Bryn Mawr College and an M.S. in Sustainable Development and Conservation Biology from the University of Maryland. She is a birdwatcher, poet and nature essayist who believes in the importance of nurturing the innate sensibility that calls each of us to act on behalf of wildlife and their habitats by spending time in nature, deep reflection, and writing. She strongly believes in making science accessible through story -- or other engaging writing -- to promote nature literacy and the conservation ethic. She lives in Amherst, MA with her husband, three daughters, and assorted pets.
