When the Museum of Natural Sciences assumed management of the property we now call “Prairie Ridge,” it was a cattle pasture. Many hands have helped turn it into the tallgrass prairie it is today, with added native trees around the borders. Museum staff have conducted bird surveys and banding at the site for the past 8 years. Bird Collections Manager Brian O’Shea will summarize data from these efforts, highlighting the many surprises discovered and answering the question, “if we build it, will they come?”
Wake Audubon Society Monthly Meetings are free and open to the public. Join us as we discuss environmental issues, bird sightings, and ways to volunteer. The short business meeting is followed by a scientific program on conservation issues. Refreshments are served.
