Dr. Terry Mosher, retired from SUNY Fredonia, will share “Autumn’s Nature Calendar: Birds, Blooms, and Butterflies of Fall in Western New York” at the First Friday Lunch Bunch at 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 2 at the Audubon Nature Center, 1600 Riverside Rd., one-quarter mile east of Route 62 between Jamestown, NY, and Warren, PA.

Mosher will break the three-month season of autumn into shorter segments of time and talk about what to look for outdoors during each period. Using a PowerPoint presentation and lots of audience response, he will trace the changes across a half-dozen blocks of time.

Following the program, coffee and tea will be provided for a BYO brown bag lunch. The fee for attending is $8 for the public or $6 for Friends of the Nature Center.

Reservations are not required.

Mosher is retired after 36 years on the English department faculty at SUNY Fredonia, where he taught courses in environmental literature, English education and poetry. A longtime student of the birds of Western New York, with interests in wildflowers and butterflies, he is past president of the Lake Erie Bird Club and has been an excursion leader for the Roger Tory Peterson Institute’s Bird Fest. In his spare time, Mosher gardens, writes about nature and rides his Quarter Horse.
