Core Arboretum Nature Connection Series begins this week

Core Arboretum

The University community is invited to the WVU Core Arboretum Amphitheater for free Nature Connection Series talks at 6 p.m. on Tuesday evenings this summer.

This week's speaker (June 11) is Stuart Welsh, U.S. Geological Survey fisheries research scientist, whose presentation is titled, “Hornyheads, madtoms, and darters: Narratives on Central Appalachian fishes.”

Local and regional experts on a variety of nature-related subjects give public talks at the Arboretum each summer as part of the WVU Core Arboretum Nature Connection Series.

This summer, talks will cover topics such as fish, trees, native history, moths, birds, plants, mushrooms, geology, vernal pools, forest bathing and more.

The talks, which will continue through late August, are free and open to the public, and no registration is required.

All the talks are outdoors, so attendees should dress for the weather.

Talks will be canceled and rescheduled for a future summer if the weather is inclement.

Free parking is available at the Arboretum parking lot and the adjacent WVU Coliseum parking lot.
