Grasslands Birds of Mercer Meadows, , 2751 Us Highway 1, Lawrence Township, 7 p.m.
Mercer Meadows, formerly known as the Pole Farm, has been celebrated for decades as a stronghold for several species of rare, threatened and endangered birds. The grasslands of the preserve are home to birds such as the Grasshopper Sparrow, Bobolink, American Kestrel, and many other species which are declining throughout their ranges. During the winter, the grassland is invaded by birds-of-prey from the north including Northern Harrier, Short-eared Owl, and Rough-legged Hawk. County Naturalist Jenn Rogers will speak about the lives of the grassland birds at Mercer Meadows and what is being done to save them. Refreshments will be served. Registration suggested.
