If you love photography or spending time in outdoor Maryland, you will not want to miss this visually powerful event!
On Thursday, March 8, at 6:30pm, the Appalachian Laboratory of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science will welcome Bill Hubick of the Maryland Biodiversity Project as the next speaker in the Watershed Moments Community Learning Series.
Hubick will share breathtaking nature photographs and stories about the Project's efforts to catalog the plants and animals of Maryland.

“We’re excited to host Bill Hubick and the Maryland Biodiversity Project as part of our Watershed Moments Community Learning Series,” said Rhonda Schwinabart, Coordinator of External Affair at the Appalachian Laboratory. “This event provides an opportunity to learn more about an amazing community initiative designed to document the natural history of our state but also to enjoy some really amazing photography and learn how community members can become involved.”
The Maryland Biodiversity Project is a grassroots, voluntary effort led by Bill Hubick and Jim Brighton to promote environmental education and conservation in Maryland and create a general nature study community.
