Event details

Join us for an afternoon with Friends of Thorn Creek Woods. John Yunger will discuss his predator-prey study of small mammals in a northern Michigan mainland wilderness area compared to those on a remote island in Lake Superior that is free of mammalian predators. Mainland predators that are abundant in the area include cougars, wolves, black bears, foxes, American martins and fishers. Yunger is a professor of biology at Governors State University.

This annual gathering of nature lovers, which is open to the public, will include a short Friends of Thorn Creek Woods meeting, the presentation and refreshments. The meeting will be at Park Forest Village Hall, 350 Victory Drive.
