Want to learn more about heirloom plants? Attend a lecture by biologist Vicki Medland at the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay on Wednesday, February 9, 2011. The lecture, "Understanding and preserving agricultural diversity - Heirloom plants", begins at 6:30pm and runs about 30-45 minutes. There will be a question and answer period afterward.
The presentation is part of Neville Museums' natural history lecture series, which is on the second Wednesday of every month. Local naturalists discuss various natural history topics using slideshows and even live animals. The cost of the lectures is free.
Vicki Medland is a biologist with the Cofrin Memorial Arboretum of UW-Green Bay, a 290-acre nature preserve which is part of the campus and also open to the public.
