Do Bald Eagles influence coastal plant ecology?

April 17, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary, 3873 Swan Lake Rd, Victoria, 

Nutrient flow from ocean to land forms a critical connection between these two ecosystems. Nutrient flow occurs through pathways such as marine fog, salmon, or seawrack, but Becky Miller proposes that Bald Eagles are also an important pathway of marine nutrient transfer. In this talk, Becky will discuss how the long-term presence of Bald Eagles influences soil chemistry and whether or not that altered soil chemistry changes the plant community. This research took place on coastal islands in the outer reaches of the Great Bear Rainforest, and the presentation highlights general plant ecology on these islands, discuss working conditions, and show pictures of this spectacular coastal region. Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature House, 7:30 p.m. Everyone welcome.
