Program Topic:

As the seasons change in the Hudson Valley, so does the life one might encounter. From unique backyard winter birds to dazzling assemblages of dragonflies at a local pond, we are surrounded by life each month of the year. How do we go from a few hardy, cold-tolerant winter species to an abundance of diversity in the late summer? This lecture will examine the phenology of biodiversity as we travel through a year in our local area of the Hudson River watershed.


Frank Beres is an aquatic ecologist and naturalist based out of Port Ewen, New York that has documented thousands of different species in Ulster County. He specializes in finding and photographing rare species of Odonata (Dragonflies and Damselflies). Frank is passionate about biodiversity education and works to instill love and appreciation for all forms of life.
