Tuesday, March 23rd at 7pm, EST,Froggy Went a Courtin’ -Spring is here and local frogs are active. There are 15 species of frogs and toads in the Tennessee Valley. In each case, the males croon to attract the attention of the females. But each species croaks at a different time and from different locations. You often do not see them because they are camouflaged to blend into their watery places, but you certainly hear them. Join local natural historian Stephen Lyn Bales via Zoom for this presentation hosted by the UT Arboretum Society. The class is free, you do not even have to leave home, but registration is required. For questions or registration issues, please contact Michelle Campanis, UT Arboretum Education Coordiantor at email@example.com

Thursday, March 4 at 7pm EST Time to Feather Your Nest – After courtship, it is time for birds to settle down. From hummingbird to eagle, unless you are a killdeer, you build a nest. Some nests are minimal while some are built to last for years but most are a wonderment of construction. Join local natural historian Stephen Lyn Bales via Zoom for this presentation hosted by the UT Arboretum Society. The class is free, you do not even have to leave home, but registration is required to receive your Zoom link.
