Bird club plans meeting

December 15, 2018

HORICON -- The public is invited to join the Horicon Marsh Bird Club Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center to hear about how the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Fund is helping bird conservation. The presentation is free to attend.

Presenter Michael John Jaeger will provide an overview of the stewardship fund, describing its history, how it works and who has been able to use its funds. Examples of how the stewardship fund has benefited bird conservation in Wisconsin will also be shared.

The future of the fund beyond June 2020, when it is currently set to expire, will be explored. Attendees can learn how birders, as beneficiaries of this program, can participate in the upcoming state budget process to help extend the fund past its current expiration date.

The Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center is located between Horicon and Mayville on Highway 28. The program will be in the lower level auditorium; attendees are asked to use the lower entrance. For more information, call Jeff Bahls, club president, at 920-210-4832.
