Bald eagle talk to be held Aug. 24 in Salisbury
SALISBURY — Bird expert Margaret Fowle will deliver a talk titled “Bald Eagle Recovery in Vermont” on Wednesday, Aug. 24, 7-8 p.m. at the Salisbury Congregational Church. The conservation biologist will talk about bald eagle natural history, their population decline and their successful recovery in Vermont and the region.
Fowle is a senior conservation biologist with Audubon Vermont’s Priority Bird and Working Lands Initiatives. Prior to coming to Audubon in 2009, she coordinated Peregrine falcon and bald eagle recovery efforts in Vermont. Fowle has continued to coordinate these efforts at Audubon.
She also works with private landowners to promote management activities that enhance grassland, shrubland and farmland habitats for priority bird species.
Fowle obtained her master’s degree in wildlife biology from the University of Vermont, where she studied the population of double-crested cormorants on Lake Champlain.
This free presentation is sponsored by the Salisbury Conservation Commission.
