Lecture # 2: March 2nd
Professor Janet Mann, PhD at Georgetown University, will discuss “Virgina is for Lovers: Birth, mating and other antics of wild bottlenose dolphins in the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay.”
Dr. Mann and her team have been studying the bottlenose dolphin for yers – and have identified over 1200 individual dolphis in the River alone. In August 2019 the first live birth of a baby dolphin was documented near Lewisetta VA. Janet will describe the life and society of the dolphin at this March 2nd lecture.
Get your fried chicken dinner at the Am. legion before the lecture and then come on over for coffee, a treat, and a terrific presentation.
$5 donation is politely requested.

On Monday 2/3rd, Stan Parsons, a local author and docent at the Museum spoke about “Coming of Age” as a theme, and discussed his road to becoming a writer for this interesting genre. Did you know “To Kill a Mockingbird” is considered a coming of age book?!
