10/15/17 – The Horicon Marsh Bird Club will be hosting a representative from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources Stopover Initiative at their meeting on Thursday. Kim Grveles will present a program on migratory bird stopover sites beginning at 7pm. The presentation will focus on the work of the Wisconsin Stopover Initiative which includes migratory birds and also include why stopover habitats are important to their survival, what are some backyard habitat features used by migratory birds, easy contributions that citizens can make to benefit migratory birds, and the habitats on which they depend as they journey through the Great Lakes neighborhoods. In addition to coordinating the Wisconsin Stopover Initiative, Grveles also tracks rare and endangered birds for the Wisconsin Natural Heritage Inventory Program and works on the Kirtland’s Warbler Conservation Strategy in Wisconsin. The presentation is free and open to the public and will be held at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center located at N7725, Hwy. 28.
