April 2013



  • April 11 - The Role of Indigenous Pathways in Ecosystem Recovery - Free Lecture and Book Signing, 7:45 PMWaverly Heights, 1400 Waverly Road, Gladwyne, PA 19035Audience: Adults, children ages 12 & upPollinators know no property lines, nor do they see the boundaries between nations and ethnic groups. From backyard butterfly gardens to riparian corridors, ecosystem fragments hold the candle of survival for pollinators throughout the industrialized world. The Pollinator's Corridor is the story of three teenage gardeners who dare to connect the dots. Join Philadelphia-based artist Aaron Birk as he discusses his graphic novel The Pollinator’s Corridor and the role of native plants. Birk began work on The Pollinator's Corridor in 2003, while employed as a forester in Central Park, NY. Along with his efforts in restoration ecology, Aaron continues to hone his craft in illustration, puppetry and acrobatics. He is sponsored by New York Foundation for the Arts, and is the recipient of two major grants from The Independence Foundation and Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts.

    Birk will have copies of his novel on sale for $20 the night of the event. To register visit www.lmconservancy.org or call 610.645.9030
