April 28, 2017 - Arbor Day In Rochester - A big thank you to our volunteers who helped out at today's Arbor Day extravaganza in Rochester. Hundreds of kids participated, had fun, and learned a little more about the environment. Our two Bird Wheels of Fortune were in constant motion!
April 26, 2017 - Birding at Kutsky Park - It was cold, drizzly and windy but 6 hardy souls braved the weather to bird at Kutzky Park on Wednesday morning. In addition to the resident birds we saw many Ruby-crowned Kinglets and 5 species of warblers: Yellow-rumped Warber, Orange-crowned Warbler, Palm Warbler, Nashville, and one Black-throated Green Warbler. All in all the morning was quite quite successful.
April 25, 2017 - Quarry Hill Monthly Program - Nearly 80 people came out to hear Kevin Kenow's talk on Common Loon research being done with satellite telemetry and archival geolocator tags. The information they gather helps identify migration staging areas and wintering areas, and much more. We learned a lot and came away with a new appreciation of our state bird.
Advocacy - Learn how to contact your senators and representatives to speak up for the environment.
