Join the University of Michigan Biological Station in Pellston, Michigan for their Summer Lecture Series: Slow Birding on July 5th at 7 PM. Joan Strassmann, an evolutionary biologist, the Charles Rebstock Professor of Biology at Washington University in St. Louis, member of the National Academy of Sciences, and author of “Slow Birding: The Art and Science of Enjoying Birds in Your Own Backyard,” will give the Hann Endowed Lecture in Ornithology at the University of Michigan Biological Station, an 11,000-acre research and teaching campus just south of the Mackinac Bridge on Douglas Lake in Pellston. As part of the 2023 Summer Lecture Series, Strassman will explain the fascinating world of common, everyday birds, such as bluejays, cardinals, robins, and sparrows. Students, faculty, and researchers from around the globe have studied and monitored the impact of environmental changes on northern Michigan ecosystems for 114 years at the field station.
