Nicolet Bird Club of Three Lakes to hosts a talk by Warren Yahr
On Monday, April 21 at 6:30 pm, The Nicolet Bird Club of Three Lakes will host a talk, “Smoke Chaser,” by Warren Yahr, a member of the Nicolet Bird Club, conservationist and author.
Warren will share his experiences as a smoke chaser and forest ranger in the remote wilderness of Northern Idaho in the 1940s.
Learn about life in an isolated lookout tower watching over huge stands of virgin fir, pine, hemlock, cedar and spruce in Idaho’s remote back country. Yahr will discuss the rigors of wilderness life, dangers of smoke chasing, experience of being lost in a snowstorm and the joys of befriending wildlife and watching over the forests that he loved.
Also learn about humorous stories about Warren’s intimate friendship with his wild grouse, Paddy.
Warren will give his talk at the Nicolet Bird Club’s monthly meeting at the Three Lakes Town Office meeting room, 6965 West School Street.
