Saving Habitat for Birds in North Carolina
Thursday, September 7th • 7:15 PM • Tyvola Senior Center

As summer begins to wind down, many of our summer birds begin to get restless. They are anticipating a long trip south to avoid our colder temperatures. But when they return next spring will they find their favor hunting grounds as they left them? 

Audubon North Carolina and the North Carolina chapter of the Nature Conservancy are teaming up to protect habitat across North Carolina to ensure our migratory friends will find a welcoming environment when they return. Debbie Crane, Director of Communications for the NC chapter of the Nature Conservancy, will discuss some of these efforts at our first meeting this fall. She will provide us with a broad perspective, detailing the challenges facing coastal wildlife amidst climate change, the restoration of longleaf pine habitats in the Carolina Sandhills, preservation of pristine riparian bird habitat along the Roanoke River and long-term management strategies for mountain forests that will benefit songbirds. This promises to be an information-packed presentation that will showcase the ongoing work and dedication of dozens of scientists across our state.

So, join the flock in the Tyvola Senior Center (2225 Tyvola Road) at 7:15 PM, to learn more. Refreshments and fellowship will begin at 6:45 PM.
