Program Description

Program Details


Join the Outdoor Alliance of Story County for a presentation on the birds of  Ada Hayden Heritage Park.
Presenter Wolfgang “Wolf” Oesterreich has recorded 283 avian species at the park, and will share photos of most. 

Wolf is Vice President of the Friends of Ada Hayden Heritage Park and rides his trike there every day possible, recording all avian, mammalian, amphibian, reptilian, Lepidoptera, and Odonate species that he encounters. 

He also photographs six sites on the same day (or nearly) each month so that one can see how the habitat changes with the season and across the years.
