Once again Mother Nature has caused us to postpone the Casper Christmas Bird Count – this time until Saturday, December 31. We hope you all can stay home and stay safe tomorrow. We plan on meeting at the same time and place as advertised before and I’ll send a reminder later in the week. Thank you for your patience!
MURIE’S NOVEMBER PROGRAM FEATURES BIRD BINGO
Join us, for a night of light-hearted fun and a chance to practice some new birds. Bird Bingo puts a new spin and educational insights on birds. You’ll be excited to see some of your favorites, but also included, but you may possibly walk on the wild side, with weird and exotic species as well. This experience is sure to be fun for all ages! The event will be held at our regular location, the Oil and Gas Conservation Commission Building, 2211 King
Blvd. at 7pm.
Murie’s October Program Features Extinct Birds
An imaginary tour of the world from 1500 B.C. forward will feature vanished bird species from around the world. Russell Hawley, education specialist for the Tate Geological Museum at Casper College, will be our guide. The tour will include a look at the passenger pigeon, the moa, the du, and the elephant bird of Madagascar – the largest bird that ever lived.
Murie Audubon’s programs are free and open to the public. The program will be on Friday, October 14, 2016, at 7 PM at the Oil & Gas Conservation Commission Building at 2211 King Blvd.

Living with Lions
With the recent sightings of mountain lion(s) in the city limits of Casper, the Wyoming Game and Fish Dept. has been working to increase the public’s awareness of what to do if they do encounter Wyoming’s largest cat.
The stealthy nature of this large carnivore piques our interest and curiosity. Join us on Friday, September 9th, when biologists from the Large Carnivore Section of the Wyoming Game and Fish will discuss the history of mountain lions in North America, as well as their ecology and role in the landscape. We will also learn what you can do to prevent potential conflicts with these big cats, and what you should do if you do find yourself face to face with a mountain lion.
The program will be on Friday, September 9, 2016, at 7 PM at the Oil & Gas Conservation Commission Building at 2211 King Blvd. And as always, the program is free and open to the public!!
