Migration - Beyond the Bottom of the Page presented by Everett Janssen, Kids Saving the Rainforest
The call of a songbird is perhaps one of the true signs of spring, and over one hundred bird species migrate between Central and South America the Upper Midwest each year. Annual migrations like this are global, as are the realities of climate, finance and politics. With species and habitat at risk, it will take more than a local solution to make a difference. The St. Croix National Scenic Riverway, along with other national parks in the Upper Midwest, is in the process of forming a sister park relationship with Corcovado National Park in Costa Rica. Join us as Everett Janssen shares a perspective from Costa Rica on finding solutions that will be effective.
The presentation is free and open to the public. It will take place at the St. Croix River Visitor Center, 401 North Hamilton Street, in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin at 10:00 a.m.
Reservations are strongly encouraged due to limited seating. To reserve a seat, call (715) 483-2274. Callers can reserve up to 4 seats.
Other Birding Day activities will be taking place in the Valley. Make a day of it!
