Come and join TNA for some of our own March Madness!

Lake Erie Birding

When: Sun, March 19, 8:30am – 12:00pm

Where : Maumee Bay State Park, 1400 State Park Rd, Oregon, OH 43616, campground parking lot.

Description : Weather dictates the movement of birds so much; it’s difficult to say what might grace the Lake Erie shore in late March. Ducks will certainly be present, and some of the earliest arriving songbirds and other migrants should be seen. Southwest winds would almost guarantee a flight of hawks along the lake. Meet leader Matt Anderson at the Maumee Bay State Park campground parking lot at 8:30 a.m. Check toledonaturalist.org for any changes or updates.

 

“Plants Are Just slow Animals”

When : March 18th @ 7:00 pm

Where : Secor Metropark, Secor Room

Most of us think of plants as pretty inanimate. After all, a walk in the forest reveals trees to be immobile columns, and indoors plants are often just furniture. It's certainly true that most plants can't run around like animals. But plants face many of the same challenges and conditions faced by animals. Like animals they need to obtain nutrients and water, tolerate drought, resist enemies...and more. In fact, because plants can't move to better conditions, they have had to develop sensory abilities that exceed our own and responses which, although slow, can only be described as 'behavior'. We'll highlight examples of dynamic plant behaviors, explain how they work and benefit plants, and convince you that plants aren't all that different from animals.

Join Presenters, Jack Schultz, Director Christopher S. Bond Life Sciences Center, Professor of Plant Science, University of Missouri and Heidi Appel, Dean Jesup Scott Honors College, Professor of Environmental Sciences University of Toledo, for this enlightening evening.
