Join us for our Monthly Nature Program with special guest Jeffrey Drummond, Stewardship Director at Freshwater Land Trust, as he presents, “Aggression affects distribution and hybrid zone expansion in montane Plethodon salamanders.”

As the Stewardship Director, Jeffrey manages 7,000 acres of conservation property for Freshwater Land Trust, identifying and overseeing restoration and public access projects and engaging the community through public outreach and scientific research. Jeffrey inherited his Cherokee grandfather’s passion for wildlife and conservation, which has kept him outdoors his entire life. After completing his Master’s degree in ecology and evolutionary biology, he turned his passion into a career. Jeffrey has worked with Western Carolina University and N.C. State University as a biology instructor and the U.S. Forest Service as a wildlife biologist. At Freshwater Land Trust, he uses his skills and passion to conserve invaluable natural areas in the beautiful, biodiverse region of Central Alabama.

Reception starts at 6:30 p.m., talk runs from 7–8:30 p.m., in the East Room at Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

Email the Outreach & Communications Director for more information.
