Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society on Wednesday, September 14th at 7:00 PM for our regular monthly program.

Amy Evrard, Associate Professor and Certified Master Naturalist, will discuss the Hunter-Gatherers of the world and how they relate to their natural environment. 

Hunter-gatherers are well known for having a vast and detailed knowledge of the natural world, which is necessary to support their foraging lifestyle. In this talk, we will look at hunter-gatherer groups who live and subsist in a variety of ecosystems; in forests, savannas, and deserts, and along coastlines. We will consider the kinds of knowledge necessary for their survival. And we will discuss how environmental and political challenges affect hunter-gatherers as well as the land on which they live. 

This program is free and everyone is welcome to attend. 

Amy Young Evrard is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Gettysburg College. She is a certified Potomac Valley Master Naturalist and recent graduate of Birding 101, and loves volunteering with the Potomac Valley Audubon Society.
