The students visited the Pleasant Prairie Power Plant Thursday to see the chicks get their wildlife bands. The bands allow researchers to track the endangered species as the peregrine population continues to grow.
Our peregrine manager, Greg Septon, visited Stocker Elementary School earlier this month to talk about the peregrine falcon recovery effort. More than 200 peregrines have been born at We Energies power plants since 1997.
Here are a video and some pictures from Thursday’s banding in Pleasant Prairie. The Kenosha News covered the event.
