Each year birds travel thousands of miles between their wintering and summer breeding grounds, drawing thousands of bird lovers into national parks and forests to watch and admire them.
Urban parks and suburban backyards are equally popular places to spot your favorite flyer. These human dominated landscapes provide vital food and shelter to rest and refuel, and are becoming ever more important as climate change threatens the future of hundreds of birds throughout North America.
Join us on Wednesday, August 22nd at 6 p.m. to enjoy “Birders: The Central Park Effect,” a short 1 hour film that reveals the extraordinary array of wild birds who grace Manhattan’s celebrated patch of green, and the equally colorful New Yorkers who schedule their lives around the rhythms of migration.
Following the film, there will be an informal discussion about the birds we see moving through our region, the native plants they need to survive, and how you can make your yard a haven for birds. If you’re already an accomplished native plant gardener, we invite you to share your story and inspire others!
For a sneak peek, watch the film’s trailer here.
Please RSVP so we know to expect you. Looking forward to seeing you there!
