Event Details

“Some Mammals I Have Known”
featuring Don Messersmith

Don Messersmith is best known for his classes and other activities related to birds and insects, but in his world-wide travels he has also met and photographed many mammals – some at rather close quarters. For this year’s annual Crowder-Messersmith Conservation Fund lecture he will show photographs of some of the more unusual ones as well as better known ones that he has encountered on every continent. He will relate how some of these encounters led to some exciting adventures such as eluding a charging rogue elephant, chasing away a herd of zebras, being bitten by an antechinus (a what!?), disturbing a romantic lion, and a sleeping elephant seal.

Light refreshments served. Please RSVP to Carol Hayes at carol.hayes@anshome.org or 301-652-9188 x10.

Contributions to the Crowder-Messersmith Fund will be gratefully accepted.
