    6:30 pm: Program begins

    Every spring and fall, millions of birds and bats migrate through the Great Lakes region as they travel between their wintering and breeding grounds. Using Avian Radar Units stationed in Chicago and around the Great Lakes, scientists from the US Fish and Wildlife Service have been studying these migrations since 2011. Join us as we discuss the findings of this study and how the data can inform conservation decisions such as stopover habitat, wind energy, and other forms of development.

  • Building a Bird Safe Chicago

    An amazing migration of bird life takes place through the United States every year. However, up to a billion birds are killed every year in window collisions. Join Annette Prince, Director of Chicago Bird Collision Monitors and Carl Giometti, architect and president of the Chicago Ornithological Society as they discuss the bird-safe building laws that are currently being developed in Chicago and around the region as well as how to become a bird-safe building advocate. Join us for light refreshments and to learn how you can be a part of saving migration!
