Remarkable Trees – and Birds – of Virginia
October 17th, 2009

tree_book_jacketDespite what many people believe, fall leaf color in Virginia is remarkably consistent every year. Dendrologist John Seiler (Virginia Tech) has been studying fall leaf color for decades.

Also: biologist Dan Cristol (William & Mary) says mercury pollution in waterways is not only bad for fish-eating birds, but for songbirds as well, who are absorbing the toxin through the spiders they eat.

And: nature writer Nancy Ross Hugo and Jeff Kirwan (Virginia Tech) teamed up with photographer Robert Llewellyn to produce a book showcasing the beauty, history and variety of Virginia’s trees.

  • I am a member of WMRA and just finished listening to your most wonderful and interesting nature selections. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!

  • Although we live in North Carolina, my husband and I are both Virginia natives and we own a second home in Wythe County, VA. I should very much like to have a CD of this program —which I understand in free. If there is a charge of any sort for mailing or whatever, please let me know and I shall be glad to send a check.
    Thank you very much,
