The Branford Land Trust’s Annual Meeting, held at 7pm on Wednesday, May 25 at the Blackstone Memorial Library, will feature a brief business meeting and a presentation on “Sex and the Suburban Frog” by guest speaker David K. Skelly, director of the Peabody Museum of Natural History and the Frank R. Oastler Professor of Ecology at the School of Forestry & Environmental Studies at Yale University.
Have you ever thought about what happens to the chemicals in your everyday life after you are done using them? Soap, medication, household cleaners, and even the residue on that new plastic food container all contain chemical compounds which can be biologically active. Through a combination of wildlife biology and environmental chemistry, Professor Skelly is exploring the fate and impact of chemicals leaving suburban homes. Learn about his fascinating findings at this May event.
