“Kentucky Afield” TV Airs Wildlife Diversity Call-In Special This Weekend
FRANKFORT, Ky. – “Kentucky Afield” television airs live this Saturday to answer viewers’ questions on nature and wildlife.
This Aug. 14 one-hour special features a panel of experts from the Wildlife Diversity Program of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. Panelists can answer questions about the state’s non-hunted and lesser-known creatures and their habitats, such as songbirds, bald eagles, bats, snakes, frogs, turtles and more. The diversity program is credited with great strides in bolstering numbers and reducing harmful impacts to Kentucky’s threatened and endangered species.
Kicking the mud off their boots to join us for the conservation program are wildlife biologists John Brunjes, John MacGregor and Monte McGregor, who are the state’s leading authorities on shore birds, frogs, snakes, turtles and stream ecology, respectively. Viewers statewide can participate by calling the show toll-free.
