Reflections on a Transparent Problem

Hundreds of millions of birds, involving several dozen species, die each year in North America from flying into windows. This program will discuss the details of the problem and point out the many solutions that are being developed by conservation organizations, industry, and government to reduce the impact.

Our speaker, John L. Turner, currently works for the Town of Brookhaven’s open space and farmland protection program. He also serves as a Conservation Policy Advocate for the Seatuck Environmental Association working on a variety of wildlife and water quality issues. He has worked extensively with local government, Audubon, and the Nature Conservancy throughout his career, and served as an adjunct professor at Stony Brook University. John Turner is a co-founder of the Long Island Pine Barrens Society and served on its board for twenty-eight years.

Before our program, at 6pm, we will be hosting a nature photography fundraising event by Huntington HS student, Alexa Helburn. Your participation will be supporting an aspiring new photographer and HOBAS at the same time. Thank you for your support!

This event is free and open to the public
