Tonight’s Fireside Lecture at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center is titled “Tracking Eagles” and offers information on the work one biologist did to uncover the flight patterns of some local birds.
Using GPS transmitters attached to eagles’ backs, US Fish and Wildlife Service biologist Stephen B. Lewis documented the birds’ movements, especially around Alaska airports. Lewis will share his findings about the eagles’ flights near home and across international boundaries.
Doors open at 6 p.m. The first lecture begins at 6:30 p.m. and then again at 8 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Fireside Lectures on a range of topics are offered at the visitor center every Friday through March 23.
