Description: In this special installment of the F&WE Webinar Series, panelists from UW-Madison’s Department of Forest & Wildlife Ecology (F&WE) will explore some of the most iconic wildlife associated with Halloween. Speakers will each begin by explaining how certain animal taxa such as bats, owls, corvids, and wolves became associated with Halloween, then describe what researchers in F&WE are doing to better understand the important ecological roles these animals play in our global biosphere. A Q&A session with all panelists will follow the presentations. This family-friendly event is open to the public and all ages are welcome!
