Jay Sumner presented a program about Peregrine Falcons at the September general Audubon meeting. His three month old Peregrine was the evening’s highlight. Because these falcons were nearly extinct in Montana in the 1940’s and are now slowly making a recovery due to public awareness and education, Peregrines could be a valuable addition to our education programs involving falcons.

Non-fiction nature and birding books have previously been provided to area school libraries by the Flathead Audubon Society. Kay Mitchell shared that the program was popular and that the books were frequently checked out. We could re-introduce this program as an extension of our current education program.
The education committee will discuss both of these topics at our December 4 meeting.
