February 21:  Climate Change and Birds
Joan Walsh, Mass Audubon’s Gerard A Bertrand Chair of Natural History and Field Ornithology

Mass Audubon is building a science-based bird conservation program that works to sustain the diverse and inspiring birdlife that calls the Commonwealth home. Learn about this new initiative, State of the Birds 2017. Discover how warming temperatures, shifting seasons, and rising sea levels are impacting specific species – which are at risk and which are gaining ground. Find out what you can do to help protect local ecosystems, wildlife, and, ultimately, our own homes.

In partnership with North and South River Watershed Association, MassAudubon – South Shore Sanctuaries and South Shore Natural Science Center.

Sponsored by:  Clean Harbors, Rockland Federal Credit Union, Mass Cultural Council, and Marshfield, Norwell, Pembroke and Scituate Cultural Councils
