AT-IN PERSON Friends of Hagerman 2nd Saturday Nature Programs

December 10, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm

Hello Blackland Prairie Master Naturalist!

This is a Second Saturday free presentation by The Friends of Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge.  This presentation will take place IN-PERSON at the Hagerman National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center Lecture Room.

 

Program:  Sparrows and Bird Walk with Dr. Meyer

Speaker:  Dr. Wayne Meyer – Associate Professor of the Biology Department at Austin College.

Description:  Dr. Wayne Meyer will talk about the sparrows visiting Hagerman NWR for the winter.  Participants will then be invited to join him for a bird walk at Goode/Hallers Haven to observe them.

Dr. Wayne Meyer has been teaching at Austin College for 29 years. He started birding at 13 in Connecticut. In 1993 he finally achieved his life’s dream of being paid to look at birds when he joined the faculty of Austin College. He has birded both coasts of the U.S. extensively and now has spent a quarter century birding in Texas and Oklahoma. The proximity of Austin College to Hagerman NWR has made research on prairie birds easy and convenient and he has been studying song learning and singing in Painted Buntings for over a decade. Meyer is also a sought after speaker for Master Naturalist groups and a frequent speaker at the Friends of Hagerman NWR second Saturday programs.
