Friends of the St. Clair River has launched “Cookies, Conservation and Conversations”, a 3-part winter workshop series, that kicks-off Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at 6:00 p.m. at the St. Clair County Administration Building Auditorium, 200 Grand River Avenue in Port Huron. These free, family-friendly presentations are held once a month from January to March, begin at 6:00 p.m. and last 45 minutes.
“Respect the Insect: Basic Insect Biology” – Wednesday, January 30, 6:00 p.m.
“Ducks Unlimited” – Wednesday, February 27, 6:00 p.m.
“March Madness” – Wednesday, March, 27, 6:00 p.m.
The first winter workshop, “Basic Insect Biology”, will be led by Tom Dennis, a local naturalist and Times Herald columnist. Tom will discuss basic insect characteristics, compare beneficial and harmful insects, and the role insects serve in our environment. Pollinators are increasingly disappearing due, in part, to habitat loss and pesticide use. Understanding the importance of insects is the first step in their protection and preventing further decline. Friends of the St. Clair River is the Blue Water Area’s largest environmental non-profit organization that inspires citizen action through stewardship, monitoring and education to restore, protect and enhance the St. Clair River and its watersheds.
