Life After Death with Samantha Nestory (Oct. 20)

Thursday, October 20 7:00 pm
Thursday, October 20 8:00 pm


Most people are familiar with the innumerable benefits of living trees, but even after their death they provide vital habitat, shelter and food for wildlife. Join us as we learn how dead and dying trees still teem with life, from tiny termites to fantastic flying squirrels and everything in between!

Samantha Nestory is the engagement manager and naturalist at Stoneleigh: a natural garden in Villanova. Nestory’s prior experience includes work with Sarver Ecological, an ecological consulting firm, and Morris Arboretum. She is passionate about native plants, ecological gardening and insect conservation, and she is strongly committed to educating the public about these important issues.
