The oak savannas and woodlands of the Loess Hills surprise the naturalist, the saunterer, and the scientist with vibrant mysteries. Those who walk slowly and look closely find immeasurable diversity and perplexing beauty. Bur oak communities feed and shelter thousands of insect species. Hundreds of these are pollinators ranging in size from tiny bees to bird-size moths in peculiar shapes, patterns, and colors. Sometimes the evolutionary advantage seems obvious. Sometimes the brilliant displays seem extravagant.
On Saturday, June 27th we will ponder brilliant savanna mysteries. Dr. Ted Burk from Creighton University will be our guide. Visit the Offerings 2015 page for more details.
Let nature surprise you.
