The perfect program for an irruption year: “Banding and GPS Telemetry Tracking of Snowy Owls, Saw-whet Owls and Golden Eagles in Wisconsin: Where Did They Come From and Where Do
They Go?”, a presentation by Gene Jacobs, director of the Linwood Springs Research Station near Stevens Point. Gene has been researching all sorts of raptors for over 40 years. Join us at 7 p.m. as Gene shares some of his most remarkable findings. His talk will be followed by a 45-minute “owl prowl” on the Riveredge grounds beginning about 8:15 p.m. ($5 donation appreciated to help cover the cost of this special appearance.)
This presentation is jointly sponsored by the Cutright Bird Club, the Riveredge Nature Center, Friends of the Cedarburg Bog and the Milwaukee Audubon Society. It will be included in the Science for Everyone series and is part of the bird club’s 32nd-anniversary celebration!)
