Sanctuary at Berry

Sanctuary at Berry Lecture Series

April – June 2018

The five-part Sanctuary at Berry Lecture Series hosted by Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum will be held in conjunction with their exhibition, "Sanctuary at Berry: Wildlife Photography by Gena Flanigen."

This series focuses on the research and experience of faculty members with various species found on the Berry College campus. Because of the biological diversity of the campus, Berry students and guests encounter wildlife daily, but the proximity doesn't guarantee familiarity. We hope to encourage exploration and appreciation of wildlife on Berry’s campus through exposure to research and species biology. The audience will be able to take the information gleaned from each lecture and have a richer understanding and viewing experience of the wildlife in their own "backyards".

All lectures are free and open to the public. Guests are welcome to view the exhibition and will have the chance to speak with the lecturer. For those of you unable to join us in person, we are pleased to be able to offer a livestream of the lectures on Oak Hill’s website at the time of the events. Additionally, recording of each lecture will be made available on Oak Hill’s YouTube channel; click the links below to view.
