The Effects on Forest Wildlife from Cannabis Cultivation on Public Lands
Date: 09/13/2019
Time: 07:00:00 PM
Description:

Join Redwood Region Audubon Society for a program entitled “The Effects on Forest Wildlife from Cannabis Cultivation on Public Lands” with Dr. Greta Wengert. The deleterious impacts to wildlife from cannabis “trespass grows” on public lands have only recently been identified as a wildlife conservation issue. Water diversions, poisonings, and habitat modification at cannabis sites are common throughout California’s public and adjacent private lands.  The research on this by Dr. Greta Wengert and others at the Integral Ecology Research Center in Blue Lake was featured in a recent National Geographic video.  IERC scientists are monitoring several groups of forest wildlife to determine the effects of these illegal activities on the forest food web. They have found that the combined impacts to forest communities are extensive and likely run deeper and more covertly than previously thought. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Six Rivers Masonic Lodge, 251 Bayside Road, Arcata. Bring a mug to enjoy shade-grown coffee and come fragrance-free.
