Event Description

The continuing lecture series, “An Evening at the Hook”, ends the 2010 season with “Using Salt
Marsh Bird Communities as an Indicator of Ecosystem Health in Northeast National Wildlife Refuges”
on Thursday, October 14, 2010, at 7:00 PM. Coastal wetlands are unique ecosystems comprising flora
and fauna that have adapted and evolved to the extreme conditions of hydrology, soils, and salinity found
within these areas. Wildlife species dependent on salt marshes are some of the highest conservation
priorities in the U.S. and National Wildlife Refuges have been established along coastal areas to protect
large tracts of salt marsh habitat. Whitney Wiest, graduate student at the University of Delaware, will
discuss how salt marsh birds can be used to monitor tidal marsh condition and the intrinsic habitat value
to wildlife communities that depend on these habitats. Join us before the lecture at 6:30pm for light
refreshments.
