Amphibians in Peril with Ryan Kerney, PhD. on Saturday, October 17

Bucks County Audubon Society at Honey Hollow presents “Amphibians in Peril” on Saturday, October 17 at 2:00pm with visiting
Herpetologist, Ryan Kerney, Ph.D. of Gettysburg College.  Recent global declines in amphibian populations provide a frightening example
of the effects of global change on biological diversity.  Dr. Kerney will share his research on local amphibians such as frogs, salamanders and
caecilians and links between environmental contaminants with developmental deformities and disease susceptibilities.  The topic is of critical
importance to watersheds such as Honey Hollow, and surrounding watersheds experiencing increased development, pesticide use and stormwater
run-off issues. Dr. Kerney currently teaches biology at Gettsyburg College and has earned his Ph.D. from Harvard University, and Postdoctoral
Research at Dalhousie University .  He also works extensively on science policy through the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  
Dr. Kerney will also be speaking about the effects of pesticides on reptiles and amphibians on Sunday afternoon, October 18 at 1:30pm in conjunction with a talk and walk about a new partnership between Bucks County Audubon Society and Carversville Farm Foundation to restore and revitalize soils at Honey Hollow.  A donation of $5.00 for BCAS Members and $10 for Non-BCAS members is welcome at the door for each program. 
All Donations help environmental stewardship of Honey Hollow.
