UA Science Cafe at Tumamoc Hill – 'Conserving the Dry Forest and its Biocultural Diversity'
Presenter: Lydia Lozano, Program Director, Nature and Culture International
About this Cafe: Operated by Nature and Culture International, Reserva Monte Mojino outside Álamos, Sonora, Mexico, is an ambitious approach to large-scale conservation of one of the most endangered habitat types in the world – the tropical dry forest. Lydia will share the unique partnerships between private landowners, ranches, local communities, and natural protected areas dedicated to protecting this beautiful, biodiverse, and imperiled ecosystem.
A shuttle service is provided to those who RSVP to the event at firstname.lastname@example.org. Shuttle availability is determined by the number of participants who RSVP.
About Science Cafes: Science Cafes, presented by the UA College of Science, bring the community together with UA scientists and graduate students in a casual setting. You'll learn about the latest research being conducted, get to know the faces behind the science, and have opportunities to ask questions and deepen your understanding. We have five separate cafe series at five different locations around Tucson, each with their own themes for fascinating science discussions.
