Weds. Oct. 21 – Piping Plover Program, presented by Kris Eilers, project manager at St. Louis River Alliance.

1024px-Charadrius-melodus-004_editReminder – our next Wild Ones program will be this Wednesday October 21 starting at 7:00 pm at Hartley Nature Center. Come early to visit. Doors open at 6:30. Come learn how, through restoration of native plants on Park Point and Minnesota Point and other efforts, the St. Louis River Alliance is working to bring nesting plovers back to this area.

“We are in our 3rd year of this program and have been busy doing outreach and education, monitoring the beaches along Wisconsin Point and Minnesota Point, and doing some habitat restoration. We do see piping plover from time to time, although it is extremely rare. None have stayed to nest in over 25 years. They are critically endangered in the Great Lakes.”
