Through the Looking Glass: Birds and Window Collisions
with Bryan Lenz, American Bird Conservancy
Tuesday, November 19, 7:00 pm
Capitol Lakes, 333 W. Main St., Madison

Collisions with glass kill up to 1 billion birds each year in the United
States. Join us as Bryan Lenz from American Bird Conservancy, one of the
nation's leading experts on bird-window collisions and their solutions,
discusses why birds hit glass, what you can do about it, and what he helped
the Milwaukee Bucks do to make Fiserv Forum the first LEED-certified
bird-friendly sports arena. We will also discuss the Bird Collision Corps,
a local citizen science effort that studies the magnitude of this problem
in Madison.

*Note about parking: There is a ramp directly across the street from
Capitol Lakes (333 W. Main St.) that you can park in. Bring your ticket
into Capitol Lakes and they will validate it for you after the talk.


About the Speaker: Bryan Lenz, American Bird Conservancy

As Collisions Campaign Manager, Bryan’s goal is to reduce the collision
threat that the built environment, especially glass, poses to birds. To be
successful, Bryan has to work on numerous fronts, including research,
design, legislation, building code, education, outreach, and marketing. The
target audience includes just about everyone - elected officials, private
citizens, public employees, architects, corporations, universities, and
anyone else who has the power to influence the design of new buildings or
the operation of existing buildings (including homes).Bryan joined ABC
after working as the Director of community conservation program Bird City
Wisconsin and as the Chief Scientist at the Western Great Lakes Bird & Bat
Observatory.
