Dave Manuwal with Maggie

David Manuwal will be the featured speaker at the Monday, November 8 virtual meeting of the Flathead Audubon Society at 7 PM. (See below for how to join the Zoom meeting.) He received his undergraduate degree from Purdue University and graduate degrees from the University of Montana and the University of California, Los Angeles. Dave taught and conducted bird research for 41 years at the University of Washington’s School of Environmental and Forest Sciences. After retiring in 2013 as Emeritus Professor of Wildlife Science, he also served as an affiliate professor at UM. He and his wife now reside in the Kalispell area.

His presentation, during Veterans Day week, is a tribute to military veterans who became ornithologists or wildlife biologists. He was able to acquire information for the presentation by reviewing numerous professional journals and contacting many individual veterans. He includes veterans from World War 1, World War 2, Korean War, Vietnam, the Gulf War, and Afghanistan.

The program will be presented through the online Zoom platform on November 11, 2021, at 7pm Mountain Time (you can hop on at 6:30pm to chat with fellow FAS members). Check your October Pileated Post for the link or email us at requesting the link with instructions to connect.
