Variety is the spice of life in the natural world. The array of plants and creatures on our planet interact to make it inhabitable. But the Earth’s biodiversity is now at risk due to human activities. Mecklenburg county is making an effort to better understand, protect, and enhance the diversity of plants and animals in the county, especially within the nature preserve system. Our speaker will be Lenny Lampel, Natural Resources Supervisor with Mecklenburg County. He will provide an overview of some of the recent and ongoing biodiversity-related projects coordinated through Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation’s Division of Nature Preserves and Natural Resources. Lenny is a biologist who focuses on conservation.
