I will be speaking at the:

Potomac Valley Aquarium Society 2002 Fall Fish Festival & Show
Sat. Oct. 27
Falls Church Best Western
6633 Arlington Blvd
Falls Church, VA

Here's the blurb from the PVAS website:

2:00 pm -- Christopher Scharpf, editor of the North American Native Fishes
Association's (NANFA) publication, American Currents, and a member of the
NANFA Board of Directors, Mr. Scharpf will present the workshop, "Freshwater
Fishes of North America: Diversity, Natural History, Conservation and
Aquarium Care." North America has the largest temperate fish fauna in the
world -- more than 1,000 species -- and one in three are at risk of
extinction. This presentation surveys species that make good aquarium
subjects, what's being done to save imperiled fishes in the wild, and how
hobbyists can help.
