ON JUNE 30, 2009, THE BRI PROGRAM OFFICE WILL BE CLOSING DOWN TEMPORARILY. THE ACTING DIRECTOR OF BRI AND THE BRI EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE ARE WORKING TO REINSTATE STAFF AND WE HOPE TO BEGIN PROGRAM ACTIVITIES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. WE DO NOT ANTICIPATE ANY CHANGES TO THE UPCOMING FALL 2009 BRI BIOLOGY AND CONSERVATION LECTURE SERIES OR TO THE 2010 NORTHEAST NATURAL HISTORY CONFERENCE, SO PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY.
Since spring 2005, BRI has organized and sponsored two lecture series each year. Speakers from around the state have presented on a variety of conservation topics, and attendance for this seminar series has blossomed. The series attracts a varied audience, including New York State agency staff, private consultants, museum scientists, conservation practitioners, educators, and the interested public — both from the Capital District and beyond (including across state borders). The noontime lectures, held at the New York State Museum on Wednesdays in April and October, are free and open to the public.
