BEDFORD, N.Y. – The Bedford Audubon Society will welcome Robert Naczi for a free public lecture on the inter-tidal plants of the Hudson River on Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. at the Katonah Village Library’s Garden Room. 

Naczi will explore the ecology, beauty, identification challenges and importance of the intertidal plants of the Hudson River. Intertidal plants are little known, yet from a conservation standpoint are some of the most important plants that thrive in eastern North American estuaries. Naczi will also discuss their prospects for continued survival.

Naczi earned his bachelor’s in biology from St. Joseph’s University, Philadelphia, and his doctorate in botany from the University of Michigan. He is a plant systematist at the New York Botanical Garden and an authority on the flora of the eastern United States.

Naczi co-authored “Mistaken Identity? Invasive Plants and their Native Look-alikes: An identification guide for the Mid-Atlantic.” He has published widely on Carex, the largest genus of flowering plants in North America and in most temperate regions of the world. His work on pitcher plants aims to reveal fundamental aspects of their biology, which is still poorly known, despite their popularity in horticulture.

Refreshments will be served at 7 p.m. No registration is necessary. Please bring a reusable mug to help reduce the ecological footprint.
