Leatherback Turtles and their big, deep, ventilated nests with Professor Paul Sotherland
Beginning with his sabbatical in 2000, Professor Paul Sotherland spent several field seasons studying the eggs and nests of Leatherback Turtles at Playa Grande, Costa Rica. Through his research he learned that size (of leatherback eggs) matters, but in a surprising way. He also learned that the twice-daily rise and fall of the tides ventilates leatherback nests, which, because of their size and depth in the beach sand, would become even more oxygen-deprived if it were not for the tides. Listening to Dr. Sotherland’s talk will help you learn more about these enormous (quarter- to half-ton) turtles, their curious eggs, and their fascinating nests.

Lillian Anderson Arboretum Guided Nature Walk with Professor Binney Girdler
Kalamazoo College’s Lillian Anderson Arboretum comprises 140 acres of marsh, meadow, pine plantation and second-growth deciduous forest in Oshtemo Township. Not only is it a site for active research and ecological monitoring, it’s a grand place for a Sunday stroll. Join Binney Girdler, Associate Professor of Biology and Director of the Lillian Anderson Arboretum, for a tour of this naturally beautiful location, and learn about our new off-the-grid education pavilion. We'll meet in the parking lot of the Oshtemo Township Park (7275 West Main Street), just east of our property, due to the new construction. If possible, please bring a water bottle.
