ONLINE: Maine Peregrine Program with Erynn Call – September 6

September 6th, 2022: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Wildlife Biologist Erynn Call will lead a presentation about the Maine Peregrine Program in an online webinar hosted by Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, September 6 at 12:00 pm.

The Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife works toward promoting a self-sustaining peregrine falcon population within the State. The goal of the Maine Peregrine Program is to restore peregrine falcons’ ecological role in Maine, as well as enable the public to enjoy this charismatic species throughout the State and beyond. In this online talk, Erynn Call will discuss the history, progress, current status, and diverse array of partnerships involved in the success of the Maine Peregrine Program.

Erynn Call, Ph.D., is the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Raptor Specialist and leads efforts to better understand and conserve birds of prey. The incorporation of community science and raptors as part of her doctoral studies at the University of Maine formed a framework for her current role at MDIFW. Recently Erynn initiated a statewide Peregrine Falcon program and is in the early stages of developing the Maine Owl Pellet Project. Both endeavors rely upon diverse partnerships and the talent and passion of community scientists.

This talk is part of the Online Summer Talk series at Merryspring Nature Center, sponsored by First National Bank. Access to a computer or smart device is required to attend.
