Snow Geese Presentation
March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Where did all these things come from? Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about snow geese.
Randy Smith will talk about the basic ecology, life history and populations of snow geese migrating through Illinois and the Midwest. We’ll touch on a variety of topics from population changes and breeding ecology to behavior, migration, disease and more. The presentation will feature lots of pictures and plenty of time for questions.
