May 1 - Program on Tennessee Bobwhites
Join us on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at 6:45 p.m. for a presentation by Roger Applegate, a Wildlife Population Biologist with the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency about the decline in Northern Bobwhite populations in Tennessee, the likely reasons for the decline, and what TWRA has up its sleeve to stop this decline. Please join us for what is sure to be a very interesting discussion about one of our favorite birds!
