Last year, the headlines that 3 billion birds have disappeared from North America since 1970 shocked the world and captured our attention. The source of this troubling news was “Decline of the North American Avifauna” published in Science by author Ken Rosenberg of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and his team of co-authors, including Avian Conservation Scientist Arvind Panjabi of Bird Conservancy of the Rockies.
There will be opportunities to visit with staff from Bird Conservancy and Fort Collins Audubon Society before the program.
