Camden — Ecologist Ethel Wilkerson will lead a presentation assessing and addressing the effects of climate change on Maine species at Merryspring Nature Center Tuesday, Sept. 9, at noon.

Climate change has important implications for many of Maine’s wild plants and animals, as well as for communities and the economy. Wilkerson will identify many of these species, discussing what determines their resilience or vulnerability, and the current efforts being made to prepare them for changes in climate and weather.

Wilkerson serves as program manager of the Sustainable Economies Program at Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences in Brunswick. She holds an MS in Aquatic Ecology and an MPA in Environmental Policy from Indiana University.

This presentation is part of the Summer Talk Series at Merryspring, co-sponsored by Camden National Bank and Jaret & Cohn Real-Estate.

Admission to the Tuesday Talks is free to Merryspring members and children, with a $5 fee for non-members.

For more information, call Merryspring at 236-2239 or email info@merryspring.org.
