Join Al Hicks on Saturday, March 8th  from 7:00-8:30 PM for a program on White Nose Syndrome, the Darkest of Nights for North American Bats, at the FLCC Muller Field Station, 6455 County Road 36, Honeoye, NY  14471.  

There is an exotic fungus that has killed millions of bats across the Northeast since it first appeared in 2006, placing some species at risk of extinction.  It is now found throughout most of the eastern half of North America and continues to move westward. Al Hicks, retired endangered species specialist for the NYS DEC, whose team first discovered the disease, will discuss the history and current efforts to deal with this problem.  

Seating is limited and reservations are required! To make a reservation, please contact Nancy Lawson at 585-785-1257 or lawsonnk@flcc.edu

Join Petra Page-Mann, owner of Fruition Seeds, on Thursday, March 13 from 7:00-8:30 PM for a program on Seeds: The History, Significance, and Techniques of Seed Saving, at the FLCC Muller Field Station, 6455 County Road 36, Honeoye, NY  14471.  

The significance of seed cannot be overestimated:  from how we approach global biodiversity to how we choose our afternoon snack, every decision we make impacts the seeds being sown around the world.  In a time when a few corporations control the vast majority of the seeds planted, re-establishing regional seed networks is the foundation of the resilient community, ecology and economy we all strive for.
Fruition Seeds grows certified organic, regionally adapted and open-pollinated seed of vegetables, herbs, flowers and grains in Naples, New York. Collaborating with farms, universities, chefs and policy makers throughout the Northeast, Fruition Seeds is committed to expanding and empowering the significance of seed in our bioregion's agriculture and culture.

Come learn about the history, significance and techniques of seed saving. Discover how easy it is to customize seed to your garden; expect to come away inspired and empowered!
