Presented by LCEC, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife’s weekly Virtual Speaker Series will continue on March 30 at 4 p.m. with “Economic Value of National Resources in Central and Southwest Florida” with Coastal and Heartland National Estuary Partnership public outreach specialist Alexis Horn.

The CHNEP and the Balmoral Group undertook a study to better understand the economic activity tied to restoration, conservation and management activities. It highlights how the protection of water, wildlife and habitat at a regional and landscape level are beneficial to the economy and environment.

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.

A native Floridian, Horn has worked in the environmental field for over 15 years, with a career traversing positions at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, University of Tampa, Sierra Club and Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation. She holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of South Florida and a master’s in conservation biology from the University of New South Wales in Australia.

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.
