Science Cafe: Shade Coffee and Conservation

  • Thursday, June 11, 2020
  • 7:00pm - 8:30pm

Is it possible to use land for agriculture and simultaneously provide habitat for wildlife?  Join us to learn about a unique case study: Puerto Rico’s historical role in coffee cultivation and its potential role in the context of human-modified landscapes. Can the future of agriculture encompass the survival of native animals?
