Planning for Bird-Friendly Cities

From his new book The Bird-Friendly City , Timothy Beatley, PhD, presents new ideas around how cities can reduce dangers to birds and design buildings and urban neighborhoods that make room for biodiversity. Dr. Beatley will teach us the tangible steps cities can take on behalf of birds, how urban bird conservation enhances quality of life in cities, and how bird conservation fits into the global “Biophilic Cities” movement.  In addition, 5 random attendees will win a free copy of Dr. Beatley’s book “The Bird-Friendly City”; please add your email into the registration form to qualify.

About Our Speaker: Timothy Beatley, PhD, is the Teresa Heinz Professor of Sustainable Communities, in the Department of Urban and Environmental Planning, School of Architecture at the University of Virginia, where he has taught for the last twenty-five years. Much of Beatley’s work focuses on the subject of sustainable communities, and creative strategies by which cities and towns can fundamentally reduce their ecological footprints, while at the same time becoming more livable and equitable places.

Birds and Plastic Don't Mix

Erica Cirino has witnessed plastic pollution out in the middle of the oceans where it harms seabirds, whales and other wildlife. But even when we look around on land, plastic abound—and wildlife is largely paying the costs, in injuries and lives lost. Learn why birds and plastic don’t mix, and what you can do to help, in this presentation featuring Erica’s original photography and research.

About Our Speaker: Erica Cirino is a science writer and artist who explores the intersection of the human and nonhuman worlds. Her photographic and written works appear frequently in print and online, in publications such as The Guardian, Scientific American, The Atlantic, and VICE. She is a recipient of fellowships from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY, and Safina Center, as well as several awards for visual art. She lives with her rescued street dog, Sabi, on and between two shores, Long Island and Connecticut.
