Hoosier Whooping Cranes– Dec. 12, special location
Did you know that the tallest birds in North America winter right here in Indiana? Historically, this was not always the case. At our December 12 program, Danielle Williams will discuss how the Whooping Crane made its amazing comeback from fewer than 20 individuals in the 1940s to more than 800 today.
Danielle is the Indiana Whooping Crane Outreach Assistant with the International Crane Foundation. At our chapter meeting she’ll discuss the creative methods used to bring Whooping Cranes back to the eastern United States, the ongoing challenges associated with this effort, and how some cranes ended up here in the Hoosier state.
NOTE SPECIAL LOCATION: This December program meeting will be held at the Ball State Alumni Center, located at 2800 W. Bethel Ave. in Muncie. Chapter business will begin at 7 p.m., and Danielle's program will get underway at 7:15.
