The Oxbow – Wildlife Conservation

Tuesday, October 8th from 7:30-9:00pm – In person at 301 Walnut Street, Lawrenceburg, IN 47025. Al Parker trained in Wildlife at Purdue and received his MS from Green Mountain College in Environmental Studies with Barn Owl research.  He worked for the Indiana Division of Fish and Wildlife for 20 years as a raptor technician where he worked on re-introduction projects for Bald Eagles and Peregrine Falcons and did other work with Barn Owls and Woodland Raptors.  After moving to Ohio where he worked at The Wilds, he had the opportunity to re-introduce Osprey as well.  He has been a practicing falconer since age 15.  As a Professor of Wildlife Conservation at Zane State College, he continues to get groups of students out banding barn owls.  During summers, Al and his wife run a summer river camp program called Canoe Creation. He authored the book, ‘A Hope for Wings: Musings of a Raptor Hacker and Tales of Bird of Prey Recovery‘ to tell some of the story of his life with raptors.  Books will be available for $15 at the presentation.
