LLI's January Forum speaker was Hilary Hart Falk, Vice President of Regional
Conservation of the National Wildlife Federation. She spoke about how habitat loss,
invasive species and severe weather has led to dramatic declines in many species of
wildlife in North America. She also addressed some of the programs and activities
that are underway to raise public awareness and support for conservation efforts and
how we can aid in these efforts.
Dr. Jim Zimbelman, a planetary geologist, has been with the National Air and Space Museum for over 28 years. He enthusiastically took the March Forum audience on a virtual space ride to the planets and stars. There was an interesting Q&A that followed his lecture.
