Lecture: Artificial Light and its Effect on Birds & Wildlife with Dr. Alan Clark
Please come to our September 11th lecture, Artificial Light and its Effect on Birds & Wildlife, presented by Biology Professor & former Bedford Audubon President Dr. J. Alan Clark. The timing is perfect as fall migration begins and billions of birds get on the move.
Artificial light disrupts the world’s ecosystem and has consequential effects on birds and wildlife around the world. Every year, millions of birds perish due to collisions with illuminated towers and buildings. Don’t miss this important evening as Ornithologist Dr. J. Alan Clark discusses the ways in which light pollution disrupts nocturnal wildlife activity and learn how you can do your part to help reduce the impact of artificial lights.
Dr. Clark is a Professor of Conservation Biology at Fordham University and holds a Ph.D. in Biology from the University of Washington, an M.S. in Natural Resource Policy from the University of Michigan, a J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, as well as B.M.E. in Music Education and a B.A. in Religious Studies.
The program will be held in the Garden Room of the Katonah Village Library. Please join us for refreshments at 7pm, and the lecture begins at 7:30. No registration necessary– see you there!
(And please bring a reusable mug to reduce your ecological footprint.)
This is a free event made possible by the generosity of the members and donors of the Bedford Audubon Society.
