Bringing Nature Home for Birds

7:00pm to 9:00pm
SSU Main Campus

The population of many species of California songbirds is declining dramatically. Join us for a multimedia presentation by Kay Charter, founder and Executive Director of Saving Birds Thru Habitat, who will discuss what academic researchers believe to be the causes of this disturbing phenomenon. More importantly, she will outline in detail six simple, concrete actions we, as individuals and community members, can take to reverse this alarming trend. Though some of her call-to-action will be focused specifically on songbirds, many of her suggestions will benefit all our native creatures—all species of birds, of course, and butterflies, bees, moths, bats, and the animals we share our outdoor spaces with.
