Join us at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center on Wednesday, October 22, at 7 pm, for a Chequamegon Audubon Society and Friends of the North Pikes Creek Wetlands sponsored event.

Gary Zimmer, a Ruffed Grouse Society Certified Wildlife Biologist, will present the “Ecology and Management of Ruffed Grouse and American Woodcock” at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center, located west of Ashland on Highway 2, on Wednesday, October 22, at 7 pm. This presentation will look into the interesting biology of these two birds and examine some of those things that make them such unique species. Zimmer will discuss the important habitats utilized by these birds and many other associated wildlife species, and why the Great Lakes Region is so important to their populations. He will also discuss some of the techniques landowners can use on their properties to make them more attractive for these birds.
