NEXT MEETING


DATE: Tuesday, March 14, 2017

SPEAKER: Michael S. Scheibel

TOPIC: Eagles on Long Island


The return of the Bald Eagle as a nesting species in the Long Island region and throughout New York State is one of the most successful wildlife restoration stories of our time. Our guest speaker will present the history and current status of Bald Eagles on Long Island, including nest sites, courtship, food preferences, and longevity. Mike Scheibel has been the Natural Resources Manager for The Nature Conservancy of Long Island at the Mashomack Preserve on Shelter Island since 1996. He received his B.S. degree in wildlife science from Cornell University, and worked for nearly 20 years as a wildlife biologist for the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, specializing in endangered species projects on Long Island. He helped develop the Long Island Colonial Waterbird Survey in the early 1980s and collected data that led to the listing of the Piping Plover and the Least Tern as endangered in NY.
