May 18 Meeting -- Animal Detection Sight Unseen'
Please join us on Wednesday, May 16 at 7 pm, for a program entitled Animal Detection Sight Unseen presented by Greg Moyer, assistant professor of Mansfield University's Fisheries Program. Prior to that, he worked for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service as the director of their Conservation Genetics Lab in Georgia. He has worked on projects for a variety of organisms over his career, primarily concerning federally threatened or endangered fishes. Greg's program will explain how organisms such as the American eel are detected using eDNA. The program will be preceded by our usual business meeting, which will begin at 6 pm. Both the business meeting and the program will take place at the Gmeiner Art and Cultural Center in Wellsboro. The business meeting and program are both free and open to the public.
