Free Public Lecture!
Climate Change & Impacts on Birds

By Vice-President & Chief Scientist at National Audubon, Dr. Gary Langham

Refreshments served at 7 pm, lecture begins at 7:30pm
Meeting Room at the Katonah Village Library
26 Bedford Road, Katonah Bedford Audubon Society lecturer

This fall, National Audubon released a groundbreaking report, “Birds and Climate Change.” The Report is a first-of-its kind study that utilized more than three decades of citizen-scientist observations to predict how climate change may affect the ranges of 588 North American bird species. Of the species studied, 314 are at risk of losing more than half of their current climatic range by 2080. And 126 species are considered climate endangered and may lose more than half of their current range by 2050. Dr. Gary Langham, the principal author of the climate report, will speak on the results of the study, what it means for some of New York’s favorite bird species—like the American Black Duck, Bald Eagle, and Bufflehead, and how we can make our communities more climate resilient and bird-friendly.

Dr. Gary Langham is a Vice-President and the Chief Scientist at National Audubon. He is also the President of the Neotropical Grassland Conservancy. Prior to joining National Audubon, Gary was the Director of Bird Conservation for Audubon California and a Research Fellow and Lecturer at UC Berkeley. Gary holds a PhD from Cornell University in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.
