April 13th @ AMC Monthly Meeting

Our meeting this month will be a overview of the ecosystems of Western North Carolina. Be prepared to get your eyes opened to the diversity of life in the beautiful ecosystems that surround us. Our speaker, Dan Lazar, served for many years as director of education at the WNC Nature Center, followed by several years as executive director of the Colburn Earth Science Museum. Dan has been an instructor in the Blue Ridge Naturalist Program at the NC Arboretum since 2005, where he teaches classes in ecology of the Blue Ridge, geology and meteorology of the Blue Ridge, insects of the Blue Ridge and tree identification. Dan has co-hosted a weekly radio show "Nature News" broadcast locally on WTZQ Hendersonville, since 1993. Dan is also the founding president of AMC.
