Birding Lecture at CSI Thursday night

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012
7:00 pm
Shields 201, College of Southern Idaho
Join Prairie Falcon Audubon for another fabulous presentation by Chuck Trost, retired professor of ornithology at ISU. Last February Dr. Trost undertook what he describes "as a pilgrimage to chase one of my heros, Alfred Russell Wallace. Wallace was the father of biogeography, and in 1858, while suffering from malaria fever, he penned a letter to Darwin describing natural selection as the mechanism for evolution of new species. It must have blown Charlie's mind, as he got off his rear and published Origin of Species the next year." Dr. Trost is a world-class birder, educator, and adventurer and I guarantee that you will enjoy your evening with him!
