Beverly James

Each fall students taking Forest Ecology are introduced to Beverly James, Preserve Manager at Floracliff Nature Sanctuary, during one of their weekly field trips. Floracliff is a 287-acre non-profit, privately run nature preserve located in southern Fayette County. During their visit, Forest Ecology students are privileged to have a private tour from Beverly as she masterfully describes the ecological relationships amongst the preserve’s diverse flora and fauna, touching on subjects like invasive species ecology and management, biodiversity, and old-growth trees.
