CROW presents next weekly Virtual Speaker Series program

By CROW - | Feb 24, 2021

Presented by LCEC, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife’s weekly Virtual Speaker Series will continue on March 2 at 4 p.m. with “Reframing Our Perspective: Gardening in Southwest Florida” with Jenny Evans, native landscapes and adult education director at the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation.

Yards are often viewed as, simply, a way to improve the appearance of one’s home. In this presentation, Evans will discuss how one’s yard can be so much more while still being attractive, including being a place to conserve natural resources and a refuge for local wildlife.

The Virtual Speaker Series programs are approximately one hour in length. The talks are presented using Zoom and are limited to 100 participants, so advance registration is required. Admission is $10 per device, plus taxes and fees. To register, visit www.CROWClinic.org or CROW’s Facebook page under the “Events” tab.

Evans has been a longtime lover of plants and nature. She came to the horticultural world in a roundabout way, with undergraduate training in biology and theatre from Mary Washington College in Virginia and a graduate degree in public garden management from Cornell University in New York. Since 2005, Evans has been the manager of the SCCF’s Native Landscapes & Garden Center and recently became its native landscapes and adult education director.

CROW’s Virtual Speaker Series will feature weekly programs, offered January through April, hosting professionals from across Southwest Florida who engage, educate and entertain participants with information about local conservation initiatives. For more information, visit www.CROWClinic.org.
