Join us for "Birds, Butterflies, Backyards, and Beyond with Bryan Pfeiffer" on the evening of March 1st in Chester!

The American backyard is a crucible of culture and nature. Whether we grill out there, mow a lawn, or grow a garden, the backyard is a destination and a retreat — for us and for wildlife. With vivid images from nature and tales from the frontiers of wildlife science, naturalist and writer Bryan Pfeiffer will present a fresh view of the wild outside our homes. Bryan will offer practical advice for creating wildlife habitat in the yard and developing a wildlife ethic on a warming planet. You may be shocked to learn what’s flying around back there.

When he’s not chasing nature, Bryan teaches writing to graduate students in the natural sciences at the University of Vermont. Otherwise he has been (or still is) a bread baker, a pot washer, a firefighter, a nature guide, a videographer, a beat reporter and a consulting biologist chasing birds and insects.
