Moquah Barrens: Habitat for Sharp-tailed Grouse at Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center
The Moquah Barrens of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest is a State Natural Area and an Important Bird Area. Over the last several years the USDA Forest Service has been leading an effort to reestablish a self-sustaining population of sharp-tailed grouse at Moquah. Forest Service Biologist Brian Heeringa will describe how the "sharpies" are doing and explain the on-going ecosystem restoration efforts at Moquah.
Co-sponsored by the Chequamegon Audubon Society and the Friends of the North Pikes Creek Wetlands. Doors open at 6:15 before presentation to view displays.
