In celebration of International Migratory Bird Day, the Salmon Region Nongame Wildlife program is sponsoring a free public program on Thursday, May 8.
Fly on over to the Sacajawea Center's Meriwether Theater at 7:30 p.m. for a presentation by renowned Idaho ornithologist Chuck Trost tiitled "Marathon Migrants: The Shorebirds of Idaho."
Trost is professor emeritus of biology at Idaho State University, as well as curator emeritus at the Idaho Museum of Natural History. He will deliver a lively, informative talk on a group of bird species many of us know little about. Trost's enthusiasm and fascination with all things avian will make this a fun evening for the whole family.
There will be refreshments and free posters for participants.
Birders and would-be birders are also invited to join a 6:30 p.m. bird walk at the Sacajawea Center before the presentation.
