From: Sunday 17 January 2021 at 02:00pm
To: Sunday 17 January 2021 at 04:00pm

In this virtual talk, Dr. Jorge Santiago-Blay (Smithsonian Institution), a resident of York County who is doing research on bees in our own Nixon Park, will discuss the origins of amber. along with gums, phenolics, and other compounts, resins are plant exudates that produce the sticky and nice-smelling stuff that many plants ooze. Of all plant exudates, almost ht eonly ones that survive deep time are the resins. Fossilized resin is known as amber. Dr. Santiago-Blay will show many examples demonstrating the uses of resins and amber as well as show how easily we can be fooled by folks who sell human-made materials as amber. Lots and lots of pretty images will be shown. Registered participants will be emailed the Zoom meeting link to join the program. Please register at 717-428-1961. No fee.
