The Lancaster County Bird Club will meet Thursday, February 8, 2018 at 7:00 pm in the auditorium of the Farm and Home Center, 1383 Arcadia Rd., Lancaster, PA.
Dan Mummert from the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) will present a program titled “ PA's Barn Owl Conservation Initiative: What Has Been Learned Over the Past Decade?” He will discuss a number of topics including nesting habits, habitat requirements, conservation issues related to the birds' decline in PA , and how the Initiative has been addressing this decline.
Dan is the PGC's Wildlife Diversity Biologist for southeastern PA. Since 2004, his role has been focused on maintaining the diversity of birds and mammals found throughout our state. He may be surveying caves for bats one day and consulting with landowners on how to enhance their properties for specific birds the next. When not at work, he may be hiking, birding, running, playing the cello or coaching softball.
A short business meeting will precede the program. The public is invited to attend free of charge and may call 717-393-2546 or 717-984-2738 with questions.
