Friends of the Patoka River NWF

Tree ID and Ecology Hike

Join the Friends of Patoka River National  Wildlife Refuge for a hike to identify and learn about native trees of southwestern Indiana!  The event will take place on October 7, 2023, from 9 to 11:00 Central time.  The location is the McCoy residence at 720 S 1300 E, Oakland City, IN.  The McCoys have planted many species native to the area but that would not necessarily be found naturally on the site.  So in one place you can see species that you would otherwise have to travel great distances to see, including some that are quite uncommon.

 

Be prepared for the weather and for walking on uneven ground.  Bug spray is recommended but will be available at the event.   For more information contact Doug Brown at 812-639-9724.

Making Your Windows Safer For Birds

A Guide is Available to Reduce the Number of Bird Collisions with Windows

The Bird Window Collision Working Group--a collaboration between Acopian Center for Ornithology, Muhlenberg College, local Audubon chapters and the Audubon Pennsylvania--have produced  a brochure that covers what you can do to help reduce the number of window bird collisions.  It provides information on what works well and what doesn't work in reducing collisions and making your windows safer for birds.  You can download the brochure here.
