ADV - Dave Mech Discusses Radio Telemetry - Lunch With A Scientist
East Bethel, MN 55005
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! Each month, scientists will present a general-audience lecture about their work at or related to Cedar Creek.
February's speaker will be Dr. L. David Mech, world-renowned wildlife biologist and wolf researcher. Dave 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.
