Event Description:
Spend a morning exploring the Leopold-Pine Island Important Bird Area (IBA) with bird experts Yoyi Steele and Mike Mossman. The IBA a 16,000-acre mosaic of marsh, grassland, floodplain and upland forest, and farmland straddling the Wisconsin River. Although the IBA appears “wild,” much of it is intensively managed and researched for wildlife conservation, especially birds. The site harbors most of the breeding-bird species that naturally inhabit floodplains and adjacent uplands in central Wisconsin. These include many declining grassland birds such as the red-headed woodpecker, bobolink, and meadowlark, which are benefiting from prairie and savanna restoration in the IBA. Class limit: 20
