White Memorial Conservation Center Scottish Naturalist and Biologist Bernie Lundie: What is Wild?

10/21/2017

80 Whitehall Road, Litchfield, CT Phone: 860-567-0857.

We talk of wild animals and wild places, even wild behavior. But what do we actually mean by wild? What truly defines it? Is it a categorical or is it on a spectrum? And how can we tell? Bernie Lundie is a Scottish naturalist born and raised on the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. When not in the village school he was catching minnows, picking wild fruit for his grannies pies and uncovering the secrets of the natural world. Holidays for him meant summers playing on the wild Kintyre coast with binoculars in hand. These experiences of nature from a young age inspired him to carry out a degree in Zoology at the University of Glasgow. His desire to share knowledge saw him become a core volunteer in various community gardens and member of research programs. Through his studies Bernie has found himself working at the remote Skalanes Nature and Heritage Reserve on the East coast of Iceland on 3 consecutive scientific expeditions . Coming full circle, Bernie has returned to his childhood haunt of Kintyre with the aim of connecting others to the natural world. http://www.wildcoastwanders.co.uk/ 2:00 p.m., A. B. Ceder Room, FREE... Donations will be accepted to help defray the Conservation Center's programming expenses.
