Sex Lives of High Desert Plants and Animals

March 11, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Kick back and enjoy a fun discussion of the sex lives of plants and animals at this unique High Desert Speaker Series event. LeeAnn Kriegh, author of The Nature of Bend and the forthcoming The Nature of Portland, will help you celebrate spring by learning about the mating rituals and reproductive strategies of Central Oregon flora and fauna. Kriegh writes about everything from junipers to porcupines in a conversational, even conspiratorial tone, and this engaging talk will offer more of the same. You’ll laugh and learn and come away with an even greater appreciation for some of the species that call the high desert home.

About the speaker

Bend-based writer and naturalist LeeAnn Kriegh is the author of The Nature of Bend, a funny and accessible guide to the most common plants and animals in Central Oregon. Formerly a journalist for The Oregonian and other publications, LeeAnn currently runs a copywriting and editing business that supports her nature-writing habit. Look for her new book, The Nature of Portland, out next spring.
