  • 4/1/20 7–8pm
    Wildlife Wednesdays: Ptarmigan — CANCELED
    Musk Ox Farm 12850 E. Archie Rd, Palmer, 7–8pm. Ptarmigan are notorious for their here-today, gone-tomorrow populations, pulsing between superabundance and virtual absence in just a few years. Poor reproduction, a cold wet spring, or high winter losses can cause drastic declines in abundance. Conversely, one or two good years might result in more ptarmigan than you could swing a shotgun at. Join Rick Merizon, Small Game Coordinator with ADF&G, as he shares information about the biology of willow and rock ptarmigan, and highlights current research projects that will help advise wise management of the species. Contact: info@muskoxfarm.org for more information.
