West Valley Naturalists are back with presentations at West Valley School (2290 Farm to Market Road, Kalispell). Laura Katzman, Land Protection Specialist with Flathead Land Trust, will talk about the Sandhill Cranes which grace our valley each fall when hundreds of them refuel at a staging area in the West Valley on their migration. Flathead Land Trust, with help from FAS, helped conserve a portion of this staging area in 2018. These impressive birds depend on wetlands and agricultural lands as they travel from their breeding to their wintering grounds.

We will meet at 7 PM on Wed. Sept. 28 in the West Valley Middle School Commons area. Guides will help you find your way. Please check out the wonderful West Valley Naturalist website created and maintained by Skip Via:
