SYRACUSE — An Urban Crow Management Seminar will be held Aug. 2 in Syracuse.

It is sponsored by the New York State Wildlife Management Association and is primarily directed toward municipal officials in areas that have an existing or developing crow nuisance problem, but anyone interested in learning about crows, the problems they cause and potential solutions is welcome.

There have been a number of upstate cities that have had a large number of crows congregate in their urban areas. The noise and droppings have created a public nuisance and public health concerns which require a Crow Dispersal Program.

The seminar will be held by Cody Baciuska, president of the association, and a bird-control professional. Presenters include Kevin McGowan, Ph.d., from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, who will speak on American Crow Intelligence and Natural History, and Laurie Ulrich Fuller of the Lancaster Crow Coalition, who will speak on innovative techniques for Urban Crow Roost Dispersal. Baciuska will describe and demonstrate safe use of pyrotechnics for harassing birds.

The seminar is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Baldwinsville Lions Clubhouse, 1 Lions Parkway, Baldwinsville. The clubhouse is located in the Baldwinsville Village Community Park.

There is no charge, but pre-registation to NYSWMA@yahoo.com is required.

For more information, contact Cody Baciuska at 607-760-8748 or visit www. NYSWMA.org.
