Join the Potomac Valley Audubon Society on Wednesday, January 25 at 7:00 PM for this public 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. 

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. You can follow her blog about humans and their relationship with nature at naturehumanblog.blogspot.com

Admission is free, no registration is needed and everyone is welcome to attend.
