A Tale of Two Wetland Creatures
Michael Redmer of the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service will talk about two very dissimilar animals that use our wetlands in "A Tale of Two Wetland Creatures: Contrasting Conservation Issues Facing Frogs and Turtles."
Ducks, geese, cranes, herons, and other birds are ofte...n the wildlife species people think of as wetland inhabitants. However, in many healthy wetlands, turtles and frogs may exceed the population density and biomass of other air-breathing (non-fish) vertebrate animals. In this program, Mr. Redmer discusses the frogs and turtles that live in Barrington-area wetlands. He describes the "ecosystem services" they provide and helps the audience understand how their similar habitat needs but different life histories create challenges to their conservation.
Please join us for this extremely interesting and informative program (geared to adults) in the main floor meeting room at the Barrington Area Library. The program will begin at 10:00 a.m. but we will provide displays, handouts, and coffee at 9:30.
