You are invited to join Gary Langham, Ph.D., National Audubon Society's Vice President and Chief Scientist, as he presents Audubon's world-renowned climate change study on Thursday, November 12th, from 12 to 1 p.m. at Monotgomery Ward Hall in the Field Museum, 1400 South Lake Shore Drive.
Audubon scientists have recently completed a large study that used hundreds of thousands of citizen-science observations and sophisticated climate models to predict how birds in the U.S. and Canada will react to climate change. This work defines the climatic conditions birds need to survive, then maps where those conditions will be found in the future as the Earth’s climate responds to increased greenhouse gases. Audubon’s Climate Report, which is the broadest and most detailed of its kind, not only outlines the impacts of climate change on bird diversity, but also points to “climate strongholds,” areas that are expected to remain or gain importance for bird communities in the face of climate change. Using this groundbreaking study, Audubon is activating its incredible network of Chapters and members in order to advocate for birds and their habitats that have been identified as climate threatened.
The Field Museum is located at 1400 S Lake Shore Drive, Chicago, and the presentation will take place in Mongomery Ward Hall. Attendees will need to enter at the West Entrance, where you will be met by Audubon staff and directed to the theater. The event is free and there is paid parking available in the Soldier Field parking lot (generally $19). Please RSVP to Mr. Thomas Barnes at [email protected]. If you have questions, you may call him at (312) 453-0230, ext 2004. Please RSVP by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 10. We hope you will be able to attend this important presentation.
