Chapter Meetings 2018-2019:


September 25th Chapter Meeting

Guest Speaker: Curtis Smalling, NC Audubon Director of Bird Conservation 

Topic: "Using super cool bird science to inform landscape level conservation: The Golden-winged Warbler example"

In this presentation we will examine how breakthroughs in technology and bird science are being used to inform larger debates like the National Forest Plan revision and how agencies like the Department of Agriculture assist landowners.  We will review some of the most recent research around Golden-winged Warblers and how Audubon is using that information to both help this species and protect the other forest birds in our landscapes (and beyond).
