25th Anniversary Celebration Review

0 comments

The event was a great success. Held at Beaupre Community Hall – a lovely venue, an hour west of Calgary, many members and friends of RMERF attended, and shared stories of the 25 years of golden eagle and raptor counting.

Featured was a draft of new signage of for the Lorette site to be completed this fall and was on display for everyone to view and comment on about any suggested changes. A new video (still in production) was shown discussing what RMERF does using some great historic commentary clips and some scenic photos and clips of the golden eagles. Its purpose will be for public awareness and the producers hope to submit it to the Mountain Film festival. Continued over the afternoon was a panel discussion with Peter Sherrington, Cliff Hanson and Rosemary Power fielding questions about highlights from the emcee and attendees about their past 25 years since the start of the organization. Everyone also enjoyed some food and Anniversary cakes. The highlight of the evening was led by Peter Sherrington providing an interesting talk summarizing the last 25 years of research with RMERF.

Thanks to all those who attended, we look forward to the next 25 years.

Casino Fundraiser: Thanks

0 comments
A big thank you again to all who helped at the RMERF casino!  It is only through support of many people (and the family members brought along!) that financially RMERF can strongly continue in its golden eagles and raptors migration observations, reporting, and educational outreach functions.  During the casino two days, I think too we had fun,  reviewed the Foundation work, and had some great conversations about life in general……  I thank too, our Advisors Val and Tony in leading us in the various roles, and dealing with chips and cash.
On top of the casino funds we receive, we made tips of $66.60.  We will know the final amount of funds from the two nights in September.

The 2017 Spring Migration Count has concluded and ran from Mar 1st to Apr 22nd with observers at the Mount Lorette site daily. This was the 26th consecutive year of vigilant recording. We thank all the sites’ principle observers and assistants in their daily viewing and reporting, a recognition to Cliff Hansen with organizing the count, and Peter Sherrington in receiving all the data and tirelessly producing the daily updates of the count.  A complete analysis and presentation will be forthcoming for this count.
