CoNPS Webinar: Extreme Rich Fens in South Park, Colorado
Saturday, July 17; 9:30-11:30 am
Presenter: Carol English, M.S.

Extreme rich fens are unique and amazing habitats that are rare on this planet. The plants, plant communities, and animals in these ecosystems have adapted beautifully to harsh and extreme conditions. Colorado is home to some of these rare ecosystems due to a unique set of conditions that occur in Park County, Colorado. Carol will introduce and explain why they occur and how they differ from other wetlands and fens.

An Evening with David Inouye: How Wildflowers and Pollinators are Responding to Climate Change in Colorado
Wednesday, July 21; 6:00-7:30 pm

David Inouye, a Principal Investigator for the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory (RMBL) and Professor Emeritus at the University of Maryland, has been conducting a variety of research projects at RMBL since 1971, in order to understand the effects of Colorado’s changing climate on the timing (phenology) and abundance of flowering, and the consequences for pollinators in high-altitude ecosystems. Together with long-term climate records, he and his collaborators have been able to quantify the changes in the growing season and flowering, as well as changes in bee phenology and abundance.
