Look for birds and you may find Tom Erdman ’86 (Population Dynamics) and many of his proteges. The recently retired Richter Museum curator was working with a team to safely trap and secure snowy owls to be examined, fitted with a transmitter and released. The work is part of Project SNOWstorm. Research started in late 2013 to study the habits and assist with conservation of the big, beautiful white birds. UW-Green Bay alumnus Tom Prestby ’16 (Environmental Science and Policy) (pictured) is among the snowy trackers. Dave Brinker ’77 (Science and Environmental Change) is the lead scientist. Paul Smith from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel describes the people, the process and the importance.
