“Conifer Country,” a look at the natural history of trees often referred to as “evergreens,” is the topic for the first in a series of six winter lectures hosted by the Bureau of Land Management’s King Range National Conservation Area and the Friends of the Lost Coast. The free talk is Tuesday, Jan. 15, at 7 p.m. at the Healy Senior Center, 456 Briceland Rd. in Redway. Teacher Michael Kauffman will share his knowledge of the Klamath Mountains and describe his explorations to “better understand the region’s ecology through the eyes of the conifers, one of the Earth’s oldest lineages of plants.” Other lectures in the series include, “Stories of Creatures and People on the North Coast,” Jan 29; “Adventures of King Range Wilderness Ranger,” Feb. 12; Fascinating Lives of Marine Invertebrates,” Feb. 26; “The Evolution of Amphibians,” March 12; and “Hunter-Gatherer Skills Workshop,” March 26.
