This program looks at how ecologically and economically important oaks are, how they came to be so common, and the problems they now face. As for the problems we can help them if we apply ourselves!

Spencer Cortwright earned his bachelor's degree in biology from Washington University in St. Louis and his Ph.D. from Indiana University in Bloomington. After further training as post-doctoral researcher at the University of Michigan, Spencer became a Professor of Biology at Indiana University Northwest. He spent over a quarter of a century studying amphibian population ecology and during that time slowly transformed himself into a plant ecologist focusing on ecological restoration of natural areas. He teaches classes in ecology, restoration, zoology, and diversity of life.

Food and drinks will be provided.
