The Brainerd Lakes Area Audubon Society will present a free program, "All-Copper Monolithic Bullets and Lead Ammunition: A Needless Danger to Eagles and Ourselves," at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 25, at the Northland Arboretum in Brainerd.

The presentation will feature two videos addressing the question: Is all-copper ammunition as effective and accurate as lead shot and why should we change?

In the video "All Copper Monolithic Bullets," big game hunter and ballistics expert Ron Spomer highlights the performance/effectiveness and accuracy of all-copper ammunition in comparison with lead and copper-jacketed lead ammunition for big game hunting.

The second video, "Lead Ammunition: A Needles Danger to Eagles and Ourselves," created by the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society with the American Eagle Foundation, features interviews with hunters and their families, as well as with wildlife biologists and wildlife rehabilitators, to highlight the health effects of lead on eagles and to encourages hunters to switch to non-lead ammunition.

Refreshments will be provided. For more information, contact William Faber at wfaber@clcmn.edu .
