Upcoming Workshops

The Secret of Species

January 16, 2020, January 16, 2020 07:00 pm - 08:00 pm
Location: The Clifton Institute, 6712 Blantyre Road, Warrenton, Virginia

When we hear about scientific discoveries, conservation breakthroughs, or just what’s been seen in the area recently, the stories are usually about species. “New species discovered!” “Endangered species need our help!” “I saw 20 species last weekend!” We hear and talk about species all the time, but we don’t usually stop to think about what a species is. In this presentation, The Clifton Institute's Managing Director Eleanor Harris, Ph.D., will discuss what it means to be a species and why they’re so important. She will focus on local examples of interest, for example, why we distinguish Alder and Willow Flycatchers, but not red-spotted purples and white admirals.
