The Audubon Bird Mural Project: A Virtual Walking Tour

We are glad to present this rescheduled program on time for Earth Day!

Join us to take a walk through the Audubon Bird Mural Project, an impressive effort to create murals of over 300 North American birds. Most of the murals are in the Harlem neighborhoods of Hamilton Heights and Washington Heights in NYC, where John James Audubon lived the last ten years of his life.

All of the birds painted are threatened by climate change, so the Project is designed not only to display the birds’ beauty, but also to make us aware of the challenges that they face.

We will see about 40 murals, plus Audubon’s grave site, in a 50-minute slide presentation followed by Q&A.

When: Wednesday, April 14, 2021 07:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

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.
