Bird-Friendly Community Practices and Climate Resilience

Asheville, NC

 

The Coalition for a Bird-Friendly Asheville, in partnership with the Blue Ridge Audubon Chapter and CASE Consultants International, invites you to learn about bird-friendly community practices that benefit both migratory birds and their human communities. 

 

How can we build climate resilient communities that support and enhance biodiversity?

Bird-friendly community practices help reduce energy use and costs, increase wildlife habitat, and mitigate the effects that climate change has had on our feather friends’ flyways. Representatives from a variety of public, private, and non-profit sectors will describe  actions we can take to protect migratory birds from detrimental effects of light pollution, non-native landscapes, glass surfaces and other human built-environmental threats, while also benefiting our communities. These actions, at broad, multifaceted scales, help Asheville lead the way in building climate resilient, bird-friendly cities. 

Presentations Include:

  • National and State Audubon Society: Climate Resilience and Bird-Friendly Community Policy
  • The American Bird Conservancy: Glass Collisions Program
  • National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (invited)
  • Coalition for a Bird-Friendly Asheville: Lights Out! Asheville and bird-friendly communities
  • Asheville Chamber of Commerce

Following the presentations, a panel of experts convene to answer questions from the audience. A reception with light refreshments follows. Vendors are on hand to present materials on glass and window treatment products! 

This is a hybrid event. A link to attend virtually will be sent via email prior to the event.
