Upcoming Talk ~ Wed., Oct. 22

How Animals Make Good Decisions in a Complex World
Natural selection has provided animals with the physical features that adapt them for life in their environment. However, it might surprise some the extent to which animal behavior has also been molded by evolution to insure that animals make good decisions. Attendees will learn how in-tune animals are with their surroundings, and how astutely they weigh the consequences of different actions. Presenter:  Scott Walters, WI DNR Upland Wildlife Ecologist. Refreshments and socializing at 6:30 pm. Talk begins at 7 pm. Sponsored by the Kickapoo Valley Reforestation Fund and the Friends of the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. Programs are free and open to the public.
