Bird Conservation is Actually All About Humans


Date and Time:

Wednesday, June 1, 2022, 7:00pm to 8:30pm



Bird Conservation is Actually All About Humans. Wednesday, June 1, 7-8:30pm: So much of what drives our ability to conserve birds and other wildlife is really about managing human behaviors, which requires us to look inside – what motivates us? What do we really want on our landscapes? How much do we need, and who gets to decide? Join Amplify the Future Co-Founder and current President of DC Audubon Tykee James for this talk during Black Birders Week.

There will be plenty of time for audience questions, too!

VIRTUAL. Tickets $10-$15.
