1 – 3 pm :: It’s a well-known story; peregrine falcons were essentially exterminated from the wild due to the lingering effects of the popular and effective insecticide, DDT. Using captive birds as rearing stock, chicks were incubated and raised by people on wild cliffs in order to restock the wild population.
Thirty years ago, the first wild pair of peregrine falcons, post-recovery, built a nest and reared their young. This occurred on Palisade Head in Tettegouche State Park and marked the beginning of the recovery of this iconic aerial predator.
Join Jackie Fallon of the Midwest Peregrine Society, and other guest speakers, as they share data, stories, and photos of the peregrine falcons that have called the cliffs of the North Shore, home.
There will be kids’ activities, live falcons, and more.
