Spectacular-not Spooky, the World of Spiders
Leslie Bishop will be our speaker on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, 6:30 at
First Friends Church. Her presentation will introduce us to the
fascinating world of spiders and their vital role in nature. She will focus
on the interesting diversity and unique life styles of spiders that live
right here in Indiana. Leslie is a retired professor of biology from
Earlham College, where she taught for over twenty years. Her courses
included Invertebrate Zoology, Insect Biology, and Biological Diversity.
In addition, she enjoyed teaching her tropical field courses: Marine Biology
and Tropical Ecology. Since retirement, she has taught Wildlife Ecology in
Tanzania, and has been a Fulbright Scholar teaching in Dominica. Her
current interest is to raise awareness about the conservation of
biodiversity, and to encourage people to learn about the natural world.
