MILFORD - The Milford Historical Society, in conjunction with the Connecticut Audubon Society, will host a program on Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. on the Milford Point Coastal Center and the worldwide issue of endangered species.

The talk will be at the Mary Taylor Memorial United Methodist Church on the Green. There is ample parking in a back parking lot and a ramp for the handicapped.

Society lecture programs are always free and open to the public.

George Amato, director emeritus of the Sackler Institute for Comparative Genomics at the American Museum of Natural History, will discuss “Conservation of Endangered Species in a Changing World: Insights from Around the Globe and from the Platforms of the Milford Point Coastal Center.”

Amato’s presentation will focus on how his experiences growing up on Long Island Sound in Milford led him to do global conservation research. He has said his 31 years of research has made him value the Milford Point Coastal Center as a priceless resource for conservation and conservation education.
