The Wisconsin Bird Conservation Initiative and the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology will host a symposium on Thursday, March 11, 2004 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. entitled "Planning for Gulls in Your Community: What's the Poop on Gulls?" The meeting will be held at the We Energies auditorium, 231 W. Michigan Street, Milwaukee. Parking is available nearby.
The meeting is open to all who are intererested in gulls with a focus on providing community members dealing with gull issues a complete overview of gull problems, gull management techniques, and legal/permitting issues related to gull control.
