Maria Grace, education and outreach manager for the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, will present “The Peregrine Falcons in New Jersey” at the Monmouth County Audubon Society meeting at 8 p.m. Dec. 12 at the Church of the Nativity, 180 Ridge Road, Fair Haven.

The public is welcome and admission is free.

Peregrine falcons are doing remarkably well in New Jersey, with more than 20 pairs calling the Garden State home, according to a press release. But this was not always the case — at one time there were no falcons nesting east of the Mississippi River.

Learn about the return of the Peregrine falcon to New Jersey and its many “firsts” that led to the successful reintroduction of this hunter of the sky.
