Wind Energy Forum, Oct 26

Our free program for this month will be a panel discussion with five panelists and a moderator. The panelists will be answering questions from the audience about wind energy development's potential impact on birds and wildlife. Wind energy development is just in its beginning stages here in Wyoming, and Albany and Laramie Counties have been suggested as the most desirable locations for wind farms. If you want to be informed when it's time to make public comments on potential wind farms, then you should attend this discussion.

LAS is online!

Laramie Audubon Society is making a presence on the web! Two weeks ago we rolled out a new Facebook page where we will post events and happenings. Now we are rolling out a new blog/website. The basic pages and layout are now live. We will be adding photos and more details in the near future. If you have suggestions, please post a comment. In the meantime, share this site with your friends!

Curt Gowdy trip report

Last Saturday, Alex Rose and Shawn Billerman led a field trip to Curt Gowdy State Park. This was our first trip to the park and we were not sure where the most birdy spots were. A core group of birders attended with the highlights being an Osprey over Crystal Lake Reservoir and a group of 5 Lesser Goldfinches. Other migrants included White-crowned Sparrow, Chipping Sparrow, and Yellow-rumped Warblers. Migration is definitely slowing down. Join us for our next trip to Hutton Lakes on the 15th.
