Inspired by the efforts of the National Audubon Society, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, BirdLife International and National Geographic we are hosting a Year of the Bird Panel Discussion & Reception!
These organizations named 2018 the Year of the Bird in honor of the the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA)—a pivotal piece of legislation that continues to save countless birds’ lives. Our speakers will educate attendees on how humans impact the local birds and what we can do to help them.
Panel Speakers Include:
Robert McGarry: Migratory Bird Treaty Act – What it is and Why it’s important?
Diane Allison: Counting Birds: More than Just Fun!
Devich Farbotnik: Bird Boxes: A Case Study of Kestrals
Armas Hill: Then and Now: Changes in Bird Populations in Bucks County
The Panel Discussion will also include a Wine and Cheese reception, and all attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the Birds of Bucks County.
$15 for BCAS members/$20 non-members.
Program will take place at the Audubon Center at 2877 Creamery Rd., New Hope, PA 18938
