*Radio telemetry (lunch)

February 12 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Join life-long learners for a monthly lunch and learn series at Cedar Creek. Bring your own lunch and hunger for knowledge, we will provide the brain food! This month we will learn from Dave Mech, scientist and wolf researcher, about radio telemetry and wildlife ecology field methods. Dave is an expert in his field. He has used radio-tracking for most of his career studying wolves, deer, leopards, caribou, elk, lions, elephants, raccoons, lynxes, elk, and hares, to name a few! He will speak about the development of this technology at Cedar Creek in the 1960s, as well as his own experiences in the field. If weather permits, education staff will teach you how to use functional telemetry equipment and send you off to hunt for hidden animal collars on the landscape! Please wear closed-toe shoes and dress for the weather. (free, adults recommended). Contact Tillery with questions, bail0311@umn.edu, 612-301-2613 (Free, adults recommended).
