Meetings and Events

May 11, 2019 // 7pm

We have a very interesting change of pace for our May meeting. Biologist Lucila Fernandez will speak to us about the difficulties migrating birds have due to the way we light up the sky after dark around our cities.

Lucila Fernandez is the Conservation Outreach Biologist at Tracy Aviary, and a representative for the Dark Sky Project. She will cover the basics about bird migration, explain why they rely on dark skies, compare what is expected and what is experienced (light pollution), introduce the SLC Avian Collision Survey, and conclude with a series of “do’s” and “do nots” to help visualize best practices for homes and businesses.

This is not something most of us ever think about, and we are very excited to learn more. We hope to see you all there!
