Eyes on the Skies: Birds as Indicators of Ecosystem Health

July 15, 2024

Are you curious about how nature functions? Tag along with a scientist from 11 a.m. to noon Monday, July 15. Today’s guest is Victoria Simons, Station Scientist, Itasca Biological Station and Laboratories, and this program will focus on how bird populations can tell us about the health of their habitats. Come learn about some of the ways researchers study birds to track their populations and behaviors. We will take a look at the Itasca Biological Station’s bird collections and see how different species are specialized for their habitats. Meet at the Biome Center, University of Minnesota Itasca Biological Station (along Main Park Drive, watch for signs). This program is coordinated by the University of Minnesota’s Itasca Biological Station and Itasca State Park.
