JUNEAU - In celebration of International Migratory Bird Day and a recent award for the Mendenhall wetlands, a slideshow and booksigning by Robert Armstrong will be held at the Mendenhall Glacier Visitor Center on Friday, May 8 at 7:30 p.m.
Juneau's Mendenhall wetlands recently achieved a significant distinction as a globally recognized "Important Bird Area." The designation is based on several requirements established by an international committee.
A book titled "The Mendenhall Wetlands a globally recognized Important Bird Area" by Bob Armstrong, Richard Carstensen, Mary Willson and Marge Hermans Osborn has just been published and wil be available at the event.
