Series finale focuses on nocturnal adaptations

Written by 

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.

Ever notice that the fragrance of flowers blooming at dusk is particularly perfumed, that the crack of a twig from an unknown quarter is especially loud when it occurs outside your tent at night, or that the sounds of a mosquito is noisy enough to wake you from an evening’s sleep?

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.
