Cape Cod Natural History Conference

This Saturday, I attended the 13th Annual Cape Cod Natural History Conference, which was a fantastic opportunity to learn more about the ecology of Cape Cod as well as connect with friends and colleagues.

From the Cape Cod Community College website:
"Is a tiny, native crab responsible for the decline of salt marshes on Cape Cod? How does human activity affect shorebirds on South Beach in Chatham? Will salt marsh restoration projects affect the population of four-toed salamanders? Do wind turbines pose a threat to bats on Cape Cod? Questions like these will be explored at the 13th Annual Cape Cod Natural History Conference on Saturday, March 8, 2008 from 9 AM to 4 PM. The conference will be held at the Cape Cod Community College in West Barnstable, Massachusetts, and is sponsored by the Mass Audubon’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and the Environmental Technology Program at Cape Cod Community College. Now in its thirteenth year, the conference allows environmental organizations to learn about each other’s research and to exchange ideas. At the same time, it is an opportunity for the public to learn first hand about some compelling subjects relating to Cape Cod’s ecology, natural history, and conservation."
