The South Mountain Audubon Society will meet Monday, at 7:30 p.m. at the Adams County Agricultural and Natural Resources Building, 670 Old Harrisburg Road, Gettysburg.
Gene Wingert, a professor of environmental studies at Dickinson College, will share his research into historic duck hunting on the Susquehanna River. Hardie Disney was a duck hunter from West Fairview, a small town at the mouth of the Conodoguinet Creek in Cumberland County. Between 1898 and 1938, he shot 17,000 ducks on the Susquehanna River at Harrisburg. He kept a record of every duck he shot. This diary is in the State Archives. The program does a bit of river history and then compares his figures with today's abundance. The results are surprising.
