The Minnesota River Valley Audubon Chapter (MRVAC) invites you to join us for a “Special Report on Ornithology Research at the University of Minnesota” with Simone Maddox and David Wolfson Thursday, April 25.  We’ll have a reception at 7 p.m. and the program will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Simone is a researcher and Ph.D. candidate in the Barker Lab and David is a wildlife ecologist and Ph.D. candidate in the Fieberg Lab.

We’ll get a look into some interesting ornithological research at the university with the two speakers.  First, Simone will speak about her research investigating the ways that city living affects our local birds, especially their brains.  David will report on his research on the annual movement and migration patterns of Trumpeter Swans in the Midwest.

This meeting will be held in-person at the headquarters building’s auditorium at the refuge and simulcast via Zoom beginning at 7:30 p.m. The refuge visitor center is located at 3815 American Boulevard East in Bloomington and is accessible after a short walk from the METRO blue line. All MRVAC meetings are free and open to the public.  To join the Zoom meeting click on this link:
