Bogs and wetlands are arguably the richest habitat environments in our region. Join Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society on Friday, April 17 for a special program that will feature the life that is found at one of our local bogs.
The program will be presented by Dr. Donna Vogler, Professor of Biology at SUNY Oneonta. Dr. Vogler teaches courses in Ecology, Wetlands, and Ethnobotany. She earned a B.S. and M.S. from Ohio State and Iowa State, respectively, and a Ph.D. from Penn State (1997) where she focused on pollination biology. Recently she has become more involved in regional plant surveys, especially of invasive species and re-vegetation of restored wetlands. This past summer (2019) Donna completed a survey of the relatively pristine Cranberry Bog of the Greenwoods Conservancy, which will be a focus of her talk. Donna also serves as Vice President of the Board of Directors for the Otsego County Conservation Association.
