Putting the Kibosh on Extinction – the Power of Birds

September 13 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm



Presented by:  Craig Thompson, Chief of Program Integration, Bureau of Natural Heritage Conservation, Wisconsin DNR

Climate change and the extinction crisis are the greatest challenges of our time. Both phenomena pose existential threats to the future of life. The decline of birds is a manifestation of the extinction crisis and serves as a clarion call to action. Birds offer the promise of hope. Conspicuous and beautiful, they can help address our greatest environmental perils. The presentation will provide examples of birds as powerful conservation catalysts and offer strategies for engagement by everyone.

Luncheon-Lectures are held in the Arboretum Visitor Center Auditorium. A buffet lunch is followed by the educational presentation.  Each lecture costs $40.
