Event Description:
Tahoe Silicon Mountain, a local network of entrepreneurs and professionals, is pleased to welcome Dr. Will Richardson to discuss winter wildlife adaptations in his presentation: “Hibernate, Hoof It, or Hang Tough: Winter Wildlife Survival.”
Richardson will discuss how the different animals of the Tahoe ecosystem combat the elements to make it through the winter. He will delve into where animals go and what they do to survive the cold and the snow to be able to emerge again in the spring.

Richardson is the Co-founder and Executive Director for the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science and received his Ph.D. in Ecology, Evolution, and Conservation Biology from the University of Nevada, Reno, studying bird communities in Sierra Nevada aspen habitats.

We meet at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner located at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee.
