The Board of Directors of the Friends of the Middlesex Fells Reservation cordially invites you to the 25th Annual Meeting.
Our featured speaker this year is ecologist, conservation biologist and board member Randi Rotjan who will present her speech "Supporting Native Wildlife in Our Backyard Forest".
Randi tells us:
"As an Assistant Professor of Biology at Boston University, my primary work is in coral biology with a focus on coral resilience, symbiosis and conservation in various ocean ecosystems. After a BA at Cornell, I embarked on doctoral work at Tufts followed by postdoc work at Harvard, joined the New England Aquarium in 2008 as an Associate Research Scientist and transitioned to B.U. in 2016. Along with many peer-reviewed publications, I’ve had the privilege and honor to share my research with the public through platforms such as The New York Times, The Boston Globe, BBC, Discovery Channel, National Geographic and NPR. Participating with organizations including the Phoenix Islands Protected Area, Explorers Club, Smithsonian and W2O (Women Working for Oceans), my husband Jeff and I are parents of two sweet children (ages three and six). I love to cook, sing and am obsessed with growing my garden as a wildlife habitat to improve watershed health and produce veggies in the summer. Smitten with the forest, and dedicated to doing what I can to serve its needs, I serve on the Friends of the Fells board as a way of bringing my science and conservation interests 'home' for family, friends and the larger community."
