Series finale focuses on nocturnal adaptations

The nocturnal adaptations of plants and animals will be the subject of the final Zahner series lecture at 7 p.m. on Aug. 30 at the Highlands Nature Center.

The discussions will be led by Dr. Jennifer Frick-Ruppert from Brevard College.

All Zahner Conservation Lectures are free and open to the public. For information about the Highlands Biological Foundation visit www.highlandsbiological.org or call 828.526.2221.
