Wildlife biologist Lisa Bate will discuss recent and ongoing wildlife research projects in Glacier National Park at our January 11 meeting. She will place a special emphasis on birds and bats.
Lisa oversees the wildlife and compliance monitoring program along the Going- to- the- Sun Road in Glacier National Park during its reconstruction phase. This focuses mainly on preventing detrimental effects on the grizzly bear. She also manages several research, inventory and monitoring projects in the park, with special emphasis on bats, Harlequin Ducks and Black Swifts. Prior to her employment in Glacier National Park, Lisa worked as a private research wildlife biologist, focusing mainly on birds, cavity nesting species and their habitat.
We look forward to seeing you at the first meeting of the New Year at 7 PM on Monday, January 11. We meet in the United Way Conference Room at the Gateway Community Center, off US Highway 2 West in Kalispell.
