Institute to host lecture series

Three events will be held at library because of construction at location

By Kim Walter -- kwalter@nvdaily.com

FRONT ROYAL -- This evening, residents are invited to attend the first of three lectures sponsored by the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute.

The series is typically held at the institute, but due to construction it will be held at Samuels Public Library tonight and on April 18 and Arpil 25 starting at 6:30 p.m.

The first lecture will feature author Katie Fallon as she explores the relationship between the cerulean warbler, a songbird, and threats to its survival. One threat deals with deforestation because of mountaintop removal in central Appalachia.

Fallon will talk about how the bird, which weighs less than one ounce, has a fate linked to our own. Fallon's book on the topic will be available for purchase.

The second lecture's topic is "Rhinos: The Good the Bad, the Ugly, the Hopeful," and will be led by Susie Ellis, executive director of the International Rhino Foundation.

She will discuss the fact that though the species faces extinction, the foundation has shed a more positive light on their future.

Kirk Olson will host the final lecture April 25, and will share his field experience from Mongolia, a large county with few people and a long history.
