PTRC and the Southern Maryland Audubon Society present a talk by Dan Small, Field Ecologist at the Center of Environment and Society at Washington College, “Native Grassland Restoration, Management and Avian Studies at the Chester River Research Station.” Dan will inform us of his latest efforts in working with landowners to add habitat to their land that will be beneficial for grassland birds as well as helping to improve water quality.
The Center for Environment and Society is located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Its land-based research arm, the Chester River Field Research Station, conducts research on breeding bird response to a long term grassland restoration project and also operates a migration banding station. During the summer months, Dan can be found out in the native warm season grassland leading undergraduate interns through the fields studying breeding grassland birds. He is a NABC certified trainer and has been banding and birding for around 15 years.
The program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments and complimentary beer, wine, and soft drinks will be served.
