The Teller Wildlife Refuge Education program will be featured at November 17 BRTU meeting at the Hamilton Elks Lodge. The program starts at 7 p.m.
Nicole Ballard, Teller Wildlife Refuge Education Program Director, will give a presentation about Nurturing Nature in the Bitterroot Valley through conservation education. In the last year, Nicole has grown the conservation education program at Teller by almost 300%. Join Nicole to learn about Teller’s program and the importance of conservation education in our community. The refuge is one of BRTU’s most enduring partners and TU and the refuge have worked together for close to 40 years on education, restoration and conservation projects.
Nicole recently received the prestigious Emerging Conservationist Award from the Missoula Conservation Roundtable for emerging leadership in the field of natural resource management or environmental protection through individual action and effective partnerships.
After Nicole’s talk, there will be a special drawing for a copy of “The View from Tawney’s Rock,” by Monte Dolack. This beautiful print depicts a spot on one of the Refuge streams near where Nicole teaches many classes. The prints are no longer commercially available so this is a rare chance to add one to your collection of fine conservation art. There will also be a drawing for some Teller Refuge caps and all the proceeds will go to Nicole’s education programs.
Nicole’s presentation will start at 7 p.m., but come down early for a beer and a chance to meet Nicole and catch up with old friends.
And remember that the public is invited to attend all BRTU events and there is no charge for admission.
