Woodland Wildlife Program ~ Monday-Friday, Oct 3-7, 2005 NEW!!
Michigan hosts many diverse forest ecosystems covering vast expanses of the state. In this program, a variety of live Michigan mammals, birds, and reptiles that inhabit Michigan forests will help to demonstrate the significant role that forests play in maintaining biodiversity and providing a wide array of forest products. While forests are a renewable resource, they need our care to protect and conserve them.

Birds of Prey Program ~ Monday-Friday, Oct 17-21, 2005
Nearly one-third of all Michigan raptors are threatened or endangered. In this program, a variety of raptors (birds of prey), including eagles, owls, falcons, vultures and hawks are used to highlight the beauty of these birds, and demonstrate the important roles they play by avian predators. The presenter will address life history, adaptations, habitats, and the threatened/endangered status of each of the animals.

GROUP SIZE: Up to 250 students at one time. Assemblies are 45-55 minutes.

PRESENTER: The programs will be conducted by Jenny Scullon (jscullon@mucc.org) or Jesse Gabbard (jgabbard@mucc.org), education specialists at the Michigan United Conservation Clubs (MUCC).

Jesse has a BS in Animal Science and has worked as a research technician on projects involving sea lamprey and the Eastern massasauga rattlesnake.
