Event description

Description

Join Michigan Audubon at the Sandhill Soiree Birders Social to raise funds to support Sandhill Crane conservation and kick-off CraneFest 2017. This year's event will be held at Dark Horse Brewery in Marshall, Mich. and features Dr. Pamela Rasmussen, of Michigan State University, as the speaker.

Dr. Rasmussen's research focuses on the diversity, vocalizations, taxonomy, and conservation of the avifauna of southern Asia. She has recently co-curated an exhibit at the MSU Museum titled "Michigan Bird Conservation Stories: Pigeons Past to Plovers Present." Her brief talk for the soiree will highlight the species from this exhibit, including the Sandhill Crane.

The evening will get underway at 5:30 p.m. with a social hour, light hors d’oeuvres and drinks, and a silent auction. Each ticket purchased comes with 1 drink ticket; additional drinks will be the responsibility of the participant. Our brief presentation will get underway around 6:30 p.m. Then join us at the Kiwanis Youth Conservation Area to watch the cranes fly-in to roost for the night on Big Marsh Lake.
