Bird Migration Workshop: How and Why Birds Do It?
FRANCONIA – It’s autumn, and birds are making their way south. How do they know when it’s time? How do young birds know where to go? And how do they keep going for thousands of miles? On Friday, October 6th from 7 – 9 p.m. at the Franconia Town Hall, the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) is hosting a free talk focused on bird migration. Come and explore why and how so many bird species risk dangerous and stressful journeys twice a year.
“The Science and Wonder of Bird Migration” will delve into some of the most astonishing feats of migration, including orientation and navigation. Charlie Browne, director emeritus of the Fairbanks Museum and Planetarium in St. Johnsbury, Vt., will present how migration evolved as a survival strategy, how birds find their way – especially at night, what tells them ‘It’s time to go’ and much more.
This event is free and open to the public. Due to the general scientific knowledge that underpins the program this presentation is intended for adults and older children, but all are welcome.
Donations are welcome and gladly accepted. Those interested in learning more can sign up for ACT’s Bird Alert and find out what and when our migratory birds return to the North Country; e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
