Free Presentation Thursday, July 21st

The Little Big Year is hosting the DNR’s Assistant Wildlife Manager, Blane Klemek, at the Cultural Center in New York Mills on Thursday, July 21, at 7:00 p.m.

Mr. Klemek will be making a presentation about birding in northern Minnesota which will concentrate on birding sites, habitat types and birding associations. There will be plenty of time for discussion, questions, and bird sighting stories.

No admission will be charged for this event, but a free will offering will be collected and donated to the DNR’s Non-Game Wildlife Program. Refreshments will be served and there will be drawings for bird houses and nest boxes.

Please direct any questions to Alice Martin at (218) 385-3245, or call the Cultural Center at (218) 385-3339.

The Little Big Year is a program in its second year of existence, sponsored by the Cultural Center and organized by community member Alice Martin. Beginning on September 1, 2015, and continuing for 12 months, the Little Big Year is a year-long quest to make an informal list of bird species sighted, as well as learn more about birding through events and presentations.
