BEDFORD, N.Y. — Bedford Audubon Society member Erik Kiviat will present a lecture titled “Impacts on Biodiversity of Mining & Transmitting Natural Gas” Wednesday at the Katonah Village Library.

Kiviat's lecture will cover the potential effects of high-volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing – better known as 'fracking' - on various organisms like brook trout, freshwater mussels, forest-interior breeding birds and orchids, Wehrle’s salamander and tongue-tied minnow.

The lecture also will look at fracking's effects on a local level, including waste disposal and plans to expand and build a gas pipeline. Kiviat will touch on New York's ban on fracking.

Refreshments are set for 7 p.m., with the lecture beginning at 7:30. Admission is free.

The Katonah Village Library is at 26 Bedford Road.
