Hawks of the West Presentation Cancelled Due to Weather
The Ferruginous Hawks of the West presentation scheduled for tonight at the Mamie Doud Eisenhower Public Library has been cancelled due to the weather.
Ariana Dickson of Boise State University was to speak about the general biology of ferruginous hawks and some of the threats that populations of this grassland raptor are facing, such as contaminants in the environment. Dickson also was to speak about how rodent poisons are threatening raptor populations globally, and how her research team is looking for ways to monitor exposure and mitigate their potential impacts.
It is unclear at this point if this Open Space Speaker Series will be rescheduled.
