Event: Monthly Meeting: What Birds are Saying about Climate Change & What We Can Do

February 17, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The earth is warming, CO2 is going up, the oceans are rising…a lot of countries meet in Paris and agree on something, while our politicians agree on nothing…meaning what?

To cut through the chatter, Don Arnosti, Conservation Program Director for the Izaak Walton League will teach us to speak “bird.” Birds don’t waste time debating global warming, they simply respond to already changing temperatures, growing seasons and availability of food. Some will thrive, some will struggle, some will go extinct. Birds are adapting, and we must, too.

We’ll learn specific, practical actions each of us can take to reduce climate change, while learning to live more sustainably on this earth of ours. In the future, when your grandchildren ask you, “But what did you do about it?” you’ll have an answer.
