Carnegie Discoverers: The Panoply of Powdermill Activity: Research, Education, Exploration
May 11, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
At the Museum
Rose-Marie Muzika, PhD, Director of Science, Carnegie Museum of Natural History
Former museum director Dr. M. Graham Netting once characterized Powdermill Nature Reserve as “ideally suited to the study of plant and animal life,” a promise which it continues to fulfill today. Studies over time have yielded valuable long-term data about birds, small mammals, forest vegetation, amphibians, and reptiles. Powdermill staff have contributed to understanding of the effects of climate on migration patterns, the response of forest vegetation to natural disturbance, details about insect biodiversity, invasive plants, and countless other ecological phenomena. From 1956 to modern day, Powdermill remains perfectly poised to satisfy many more goals than Director Netting could have imagined.
