ASWP Speakers Bureau
Need a speaker for your organization, club meeting or conference? We offer presentations on a wide variety of natural history and native landscaping subjects.
Programs can be 45 to 90 minutes in length, depending on your needs. Programs are designed for adults and interested youth with a general interest in the subject or nature. Appropriate for teachers, as well, meeting Act 48 guidelines. (For teachers, we also offer a selection of workshops). These programs are intended for a classroom or auditorium setting. Short outside elements can be included at your option, depending on the setting and the subject.
We can come to you or you can come to Beechwood Farms Nature Reserve. Fees: $125 per program up to 90 minutes, plus a $50 travel fee if not meeting at Beechwood. If you would like to use a room at Beechwood for your business in addition to our program, room rental fees are additional.
