The migrating tundra swans that will soon be arriving on the river in great numbers will be the speaker's topic at the Coulee Region Audubon Society meeting at 7 p.m. Oct. 19 in the lower level of the HoChunk building, 724 Main Street, La Crosse.
Kevin Kenow, research wildlife biologist with the United States Geological Survey in La Crosse, will discuss his work on the Migration Ecology of Tundra Swans on the Upper Mississippi River. He will answer questions after the presentation.
Kenow's current work includes assessing the ecological risk of mercury exposure to fish-eating wildlife, documenting vegetation response to pool-wide drawdowns on the Upper Mississippi River, and studying the migration ecology of common loons and tundra swans. The meeting is free and open to the public. Refreshments are served.
