Current Programs, 2022-2023
September 28, 2022
7:00 – 8:00 PM
Laura Katzman, Land Protection Specialist with Flathead Land Trust, will talk about the Sandhill Cranes which grace our valley each fall when hundreds of them refuel at a staging area in the West Valley on their migration. Flathead Land Trust, with help from FAS, helped conserve a portion of this staging area in 2018. These impressive birds depend on wetlands and agricultural lands as they travel from their breeding to their wintering grounds. We will meet at 7:00 pm on Wed. Sept. 28 in the Middle School Commons area. Guides will help you find your way.
