Coastal Mountains Nature Program Speaker Series: Interactions Among Plants and Insects – the Complex Webs They Weave
October 30, 2019
Coastal Mountains Nature Program presents a talk by Roger Rittmaster: Interactions Among Plants and Insects – the Complex Webs They Weave on Thursday, November 14 at 7:00pm at the Camden Public Library. Have you ever wondered why native plants and insects are so important?
Dr. Rittmaster, Maine Master Naturalist and avid nature photographer, will stimulate your thinking about our natural environment in his presentation on the complex web weaved by the inhabitants of the woods and fields around us.
Rittmaster is a retired endocrinologist, who has a lifelong interest in natural history and nature photography, and over the past 15 years has focused on photographing insects. He is a Maine Master Naturalist and the author of “Butterflies Up Close: A Guide to Butterfly Photography”. He currently serves on the Board of Coastal Mountains Land Trust and is past Chair of the Camden Conservation Commission.
The Coastal Mountains Nature Program is co-hosted by Coastal Mountains Land Trust and the Town of Camden Conservation Commission. The program hosts walks and talks exploring the natural history of Midcoast Maine to educate the public about environment issues and to increase opportunities for residents to explore this region.
Coastal Mountains Land Trust has worked since 1986 to permanently conserve land to benefit the natural and human communities of the western Penobscot Bay. The Land Trust has protected over 10,000 acres to date, and created 45 miles of permanent trails for public access.
