Our October 15 Meeting will feature a presentation by Matt West on bald eagles and ospreys. Matt has been monitoring their nests for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers since 2006 and has gained extensive knowledge about these majestic raptors over the course of years of volunteer work. Matt will discuss the the re-introduction of eagles and osprey into Pennsylvania, talk about their lives and habitat preferences, and show how to identify these species. Matt currently works for the PA Department of Transportation as the Tourist Information Counselor at the Keystone Welcome Center on Route 15 in Tioga. The program will take place on Wednesday at 7:30 at the Gmeiner Art and Cultural Center on 134 Main Street next to the Green Free Library in Wellsboro. The program is free, and everyone is invited to attend. There will also be a chapter business meeting at 6:30 before the presentation. You are welcome to join that as well.
