Speakers: Zurijanne Carter, Conservation Biologist, Great Parks of Hamilton County and Bret Henninger, Chief of Conservation and Parks, Great Parks of Hamilton County
Our June program will highlight amphibian survey work in our county parks. Zurijanne will be discussing development of the survey program, how the parks have navigated adjustments in the program, and some early results from survey work. Bret will then speak briefly about the strategic plan for the park system.
Zurijanne is originally from the Palmetto state (South Carolina) and relocated to the Cincinnati area in 2015. She studied wildlife biology and management focusing on human dimensions. In her spare time Zuri enjoys reading, hiking, cycling, and photography.
