BIRDS & COMMUNITY LECTURE SERIES

Birds & Community Lecture Series

Birds & Community is a brand-new Tucson Audubon initiative aimed at reaching new audiences while maintaining connections with traditional ones. Our annual Lecture Series, now a part of Birds & Community, will provide Tucson-area residents with a new perspective on the world of birds and the work of Tucson Audubon. Lectures are scheduled in a variety of locations (some new for 2019–2020) as a means of reaching as many community members as we can. Each date is an opportunity to meet face to face with fellow community members who share an interest in birds, or nature in general. Presentations, as always, remain open to the public and free of charge.

Counting Birds for Conservation with Jennie MacFarland

Bird counts are the sturdy backbone of bird conservation. Without baseline knowledge of bird populations, it’s hard to know what’s happening. Which species are thriving, and which ones need our help? The Tucson Bird Count is the oldest urban bird census in the country. The Christmas Bird Count is the longest running. Understand the importance of these Community Science projects and how you can support them. Western Yellow-billed Cuckoos and Elegant Trogons are some of the birds you can count for conservation with Tucson Audubon.

The Santa Cruz: A River of Birds with Tucson Audubon Staff
Members Annual Holiday Potluck

Take a virtual journey down Southeast Arizona’s iconic Santa Cruz River. It’s one of the few waterways in the world that runs south, then north, and the only river in the U.S. to cross an international border twice. The forests flanking the Santa Cruz once sheltered beavers and grizzly bears; today the river is a major migration corridor, supporting over 200 bird species including the rare Rose-throated Becard, Gray Hawk, and Yellow-billed Cuckoo. Learn how the river is changing, and how to experience the bird community it supports.
