Members Appreciation Month: Animal Oddities with Dr. Greg Pauly

Dr. Pauly will talk about NHMLAC's role as a global leader in community science, sharing details about the UNRC's efforts to create new ways to understand and connect to urban nature by inviting hundreds of community members to conduct biodiversity research that would not have been possible without their partnership.

We'll hear scaly (and sometimes scandalous) stories about crowdsourcing the study of lizard mating behavior, then Dr. Pauly will announce the launch of a brand new project examining the impact of invasive brown widows in Southern California and share how you can be part of the discovery!
