Climate Conversations: Migratory Birds

Are migratory birds "keeping up" with earlier springs? Have you ever wondered how birds know when to migrate from their winter grounds to make their way north in time for spring? What happens if they arrive out of sync with “our” spring? As we experience a shift in spring and it begins earlier each year, the timing between migratory birds, plants and insects may have serious implications to the world as we know it.

Join us, and special guest speaker, John Withey, Ph. D, faculty of the Evergreen State College. John is a terrestrial ecologist who studies the responses of native wildlife to urbanization and climate change.
