Wednesday, March 15, 2017 - Readings by Ron Hitchcock from his recently published book, Places and Fables.
Join Meadowlark Audubon as we are taken on a journey through the wilds as seen and recorded by Ron Hitchcock in his new book, Places and Fables. Ron will share his unique perspective of the natural world through his training and experience as a biologist and a naturalist, and presented by his gifted writing as a poet.
Ron Hitchcock grew up in the St. Lawrence River Valley of northern New York. He received his B.S. in Biology from State University of New York at Potsdam, and then traveled to Auburn, Alabama, where he earned his M.S. and PhD in Wildlife Biology at Auburn University. Ron came to Northwest College in Powell, Wyoming, where he was an instructor in the biological sciences from 1988 until his retirement in 2015.
Some of the classes Ron taught while at Northwest College included General Biology I and II, Vertebrate Natural History, and Wildlife Management. His research interests include Avian and Mammalian Behavior, and Mourning Dove Vocalizations and Behavioral Interactions.
Come join the group as Ron shares his special insights and talented writing with us.
Fall Migration Bird Surveys of the Beck Lake Complex Important Bird Area (IBA) in Cody ended on November 14, 2016. Join us in the spring as we count the birds on their way back north.
The Spring Survey will be held each Monday for nine weeks, March 20 through May 15, 2017, and will be open to all interested or aspiring birders.
Each week's survey begins one hour after sunrise at the first stop, the west end of Beck Lake by the Taco John parking lot. You may meet the group in the Taco John parking area at the starting time, or if you would like a cup of coffee or cocoa and some camaraderie, join the other birders 30 minutes earlier at McDonald's restaurant. Carpooling is encouraged.
If you arrive after we start counting, just catch up and join us! We look forward to seeing you!
