FREE Amphibians in the City Lecture
December 7, 2022 @ 5:45 pm - 7:00 pm
Hello, Tukwila’s Stewards, Community Partners, Environmental Organizations, and City Staff,
Green Tukwila, in partnership with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, has created Wildlife Wednesdays. This six-part series highlights different local wildlife each month with a FREE lecture, in person, and on Zoom. December, we are highlighting “Amphibians in the City” with Guest Speaker Max Lambert, PhD.
Please help us make these events successful by joining yourself, sharing with your network, posting on social media pages, and using word of mouth. Education is the number one tool for supporting our urban forests, green spaces and making a difference in our homes to support wildlife.
Amphibians in the City
December 7th, Wednesday 5:45 pm – 7:00 pm
Hybrid Event: Tukwila Community Center or Zoom
Registration is required: www.Tukwilawa.gov/greentukwila
Learn about urban amphibian (frog and salamander) diversity living around us in Western Washington, including the unique species that live alongside us in our cities and suburbs. We’ll discuss the threats these critters face and how we are helping them out.
Max Lambert, PhD:
Aquatic Research Section Manager at Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife
“I have over a decade of experience as a research biologist studying how human activities influence wildlife and how animals subsequently evolve to deal with novel environmental conditions, both in natural environments and in our cities and suburbs.
My research is highly integrative and merges careful field observations, laboratory experiments, genomics techniques, endocrinology, environmental chemistry, studies of museum specimens, and geospatial GIS analyses to understand the fundamental dynamics of the natural world and how we conserve it better.”
