Lecture: Migratory Birds with the Monterey Audubon Society

Some birds are sedentary. Others fly famously long distances from their breeding grounds to winter ranges in milder climes. As global climate patterns change with increasing severity, and human population in the west continues to grow, the threat to the Pacific’s migratory birds will grow, too.

Join the Audubon Society at the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History for an important presentation by Mike Sutton, who will discuss his work as National Audubon’s Chief of the Pacific Flyway, coordinating advocacy, policy and priorities to protect migratory birds traveling up and down our coastline.

In addition to heading the Pacific Flyway, Mike is also chair of California’s Fish and Wildlife Commission, a past Vice President of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, a legal scholar in the field of Oceans and Coastal Law, as well as capable fly-fisherman. He lives in Carmel Valley with his family.

Doors open at 7 p.m., lecture to begin at 7:30 p.m. 

All monthly Audubon meetings are held at the Pacific Grove Museum on the second Tuesday of the month. All meetings are free and members and non-members are welcome! Doors open at 7 p.m. with soft drinks and cookies provided by MAS hospitality. The talk is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. Monterey Audubon has been devoted to the understanding, conservation and enjoyment of Central California's birdlife since 1943. We strive to connect communities and individuals to the region's avifauna through educational programs and outdoor recreation. As a chapter of America's oldest conservation group we are also committed to advocacy on behalf of native avifauna and ecosystems as well as the implementation of stewardship practices which conserve and restore the Monterey region's precious biological diversity and wildlife.
