Is the ivory-billed woodpecker gone forever? Matt Courtman says, “No!”
The Louisiana Master Naturalists – Northeast first quarter 2020 meeting is scheduled Sunday, Jan. 19, at 2 p.m. in the Black Bayou Lake NWR Education Center. As always we begin with a speaker on a natural history subject. This time it will be Matt, and, yes, he will make a case that the ivory-bill can and will be found alive and well in Louisiana.
Matt has been fascinated with the ivory-bill since he was 8 years old. He will inform us about the ivory-bill’s unique place in Louisiana’s natural history and will lay out varies theories about its disappearance.
But the driving force behind all of that will be his hope and determination to find that the ivory-bill has persisted and still lives in Louisiana. So come, join the discussion and find out about Matt’s statewide collaborative effort to find, document and protect the ivory-bill.
Certified LMN-NE members, you can count this as continuing ed. I will have our tracking app up and running by then. At about 3 p.m., we will engage in a brief business meeting, and after that…. the Refuge awaits! Yay!
