Bitterroot Audubon’s October meeting will feature a presentation on the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge in New Mexico. The speaker will be Jo Ramundo, a Hamilton resident who volunteered at Bosque del Apache as an assistant ranger/naturalist. Bosque del Apache is perhaps best known as the wintering grounds for thousands of Sandhill Cranes, and hosts the internationally known Festival of the Cranes annually in November. Ramundo's presentation will introduce us to the birds and animals of the Bosque del Apache NWR, the Crane Festival and her volunteer experience.
The presentation is at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15, in the Slack Barn at the Teller Wildlife Refuge, located just off of the Eastside Highway, north of Corvallis. Contact Kay at 360-8664, for further information.
