The Columbian Exchange

 Chris Kubiak, Educational Director of the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania has an academic interest in climate change and its impact on humans and our ecosystem. This program takes a look at how the Columbian Exchange connected the new and old worlds with the transmission of ideas, plants, animals and diseases after Columbus's journey in 1492. Two worlds that have evolved apart with very different organisms and how they started to become homogenous will be discussed.

*Please note: This meeting will take place at the Succop Nature Center, 185 Airport Road Butler PA 16002 at 10am
