Wildlife conservation in your own backyard

Sunday, March 18, 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.

Central Congregational Church
1 Worthen Street
Chelmsford, MA 01824

Join Dr. Bryan Windmiller, Director of Conservation at Zoo New England, for a discussion on the Zoo’s efforts to help preserve some of the rare and declining species that live in Chelmsford and the surrounding communities. In our increasingly crowded and busy world, many of the wondrous living treasures that grace our Earth—from rhinos and polar bears to tropical orchids—are at risk of disappearing. Equally threatened are many of the beautiful and little known animals and plants that live in your state, your town, or perhaps your own backyard.

Dr. Windmiller will highlight what individuals can do to help make sure that local wildlife species will be around for many generations to come. This program is for the Chelmsford Land Conservation Trust and open to the public, free of charge. Light refreshments will be served after the presentation. 

Dr. Bryan Windmiller was the founder and executive director of Grassroots Wildlife Conservation (GWC), a non-profit that integrates hands-on educational programs into the conservation of rare animal and plant species. Last fall, Grassroots Wildlife Conservation merged with Zoo New England. Learn more about the merger.
