Habitat and mitigating climate change Nature conservancy program topic
 
Presenter: Fred Annand, Associate Director of the NC Chapter of The Nature Conservancy
The mission of The Nature Conservancy is “to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends”. Fred Annand, Associate Director of the NC Chapter of The Nature Conservancy will share some conservation achievements which have been of great benefit to bird habitat with an emphasis on how mitigating climate change enters into future planning.
Mr. Annand has been with The Nature Conservancy’s North Carolina Chapter for more than thirty years. As the individual who holds much of the responsibility for the real estate transactions of the North Carolina Chapter, Fred has contributed directly to the preservation of nearly two-thirds of the 700,000 acres the Conservancy has protected in North Carolina. Mr. Annand has implemented the protection in areas such as the Jocassee Gorges along the Blue Ridge Escarpment, Grandfather Mountain’s backcountry, Panthertown Valley in Jackson, Macon and Transylvania Counties and the lower Roanoke River floodplain in Bertie, Martin and Washington Counties.

Please join us for the March meeting to learn more about the efforts and achievements of The Nature Conservancy, Thursday March 5th, 7:15 PM in the Tyvola Senior Center (2225 Tyvola Road.) at 7:15 PM. Come early for snacks and refreshments including Birds & Beans Bird Friendly® coffee!
