FRIDAY, APRIL 16, 5 TO 6 P.M. || MOSQUITO CONTROL HEADQUARTERS AT 2100 LEON C. SIMON
Grab a spot on the grass, and join a conversation on plants, bugs, and ecology in urban areas. Evolutionary biologist Dr. Jelagat Cheruiyot and NOMRTCB entomologist Dr. Jennifer Breaux will share their perspectives on the interactions of plants, bugs, soil, and water, and lead an open conversation on the ecology of neighborhoods like Gentilly and urban areas like New Orleans. We will use the trees, wildflowers, grasses, weeds, roadways, and infrastructure that is around us to explore each of these topics.
Open to all!
From April through June, we invite the public to join a series of hands-on learning, arts, and environmental stewardship activities. Explore the themes of water, ecology, and infrastructure through community conversations, creative activities led by artists, a native wildflower meadow planting, infrastructure and garden walks, film screenings, and musical performances.
