 Bird populations are decreasing throughout North America and locally in the southwest. This program discusses the reasons associated with that decline. Habitat loss and alteration, the effects of chemicals in the environment including the continuing increase of carbon emissions and the resulting alteration of atmospheric gas composition are discussed. Arizona birds of concern are a large part of this program. Ways we can improve the success of bird populations and help are emphasized.Please meet at the Nature Center classroom.
