On Wednesday, May 1st, at the Minocqua Brewing Company, &ldquo Science on Tap-Minocqua&rdquo will present &ldquo The Call of the Loon: Protecting Northwoods Loons for Future Generations&rdquo
Wildlife toxicologist and ecologist, Michael Meyer, from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources&rsquo Rhinelander office, will talk about the recovery of the common loon in Wisconsin&rsquo s Northwoods.
Loon numbers were once alarmingly low, threatening to leave our lakes without that iconic bird and its iconic call. But, through the hard work of scientists, resource managers and citizen volunteers, loon numbers have increased in northern Wisconsin. Meyer will talk about how loons were brought back from the brink and what we can do to preserve loon habitat and keep the bird coming back to Wisconsin for future generations.
The talk starts at 6:30 p.m. Come on out, grab a beer, and bring your questions as we continue our series of monthly discussions about the science of the Northwoods.
