November 2016 Manistee Audubon program

November Meeting Wednesday November 9th at Manistee Dial-a-Ride Building 7:00PM

Can We Save Our Birds?

In 2014, just over 200 of North America’s birds were at risk of extinction. Now, a mere two years later, that number has grown to more than 430 avian species at risk of extinction. If this downward slide continues, we could lose many of these beautiful creatures in the next generation. Noted speaker, award winning writer and Executive Director of Saving Birds Thru Habitat, Kay Charter views the decline as a much more than a serious cause for concern. For her, it is a clarion call to action, not just for birders, but for all of us.
Join her at 7PM on Wednesday evening, Nov. 9 at Manistee Dial-a-Ride (next to the old Oleson’s store) for a presentation sponsored by Manistee Audubon to learn about the hazards and challenges our wonderful birds face. Charter will offer easy to follow recommendations on how every person can make a difference for these amazing feathered creatures.
As Executive Director of SBTH charter has presented her engaging and informative programs to city governments, libraries, schools, colleges, Audubon clubs, service organizations and garden groups across the country. She was a featured speaker at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis, the Cox Arboretum in Dayton, Morton Arboretum near Chicago and the 2006 Rivers and Wildlife Festival in Kearney, Nebraska. In 2007, she presented a seminar on the subject of bird conservation to a standing room only crowd at the world renowned Zoological Society of San Diego’s Center for Conservation and Research for Endangered Species.
