Lynx update Wednesday night at VCC

The last Ely Field Naturalist public program of 2016 will present an update of Canada Lynx on the Superior National Forest.
Biologist Sarah Malick-Wahls from the Kawishiwi Ranger District in Ely will present an update on research and monitoring at the beginning of another winter field season.
Lynx activity during winter months engages national forest service personnel and volunteers in field observations, tracking, and data collection for identifying individuals and measuring the size of the lynx population present in northeastern Minnesota.
In addition, to Sarah’s presentation there will be cards, prints and calendars developed by Heidi Pinkerton available as an EFN fundraiser, and also, information about upcoming Christmas bird counts over the holiday season.
This meeting is free and open to the public at 7 p.m. in Classroom CL104 at Vermilion Community College.
