One of the world's foremost experts on bird-glass collisions, Dr. Daniel
Klem Jr., will be visiting Minnesota to speak on the effects on bird
mortality of glass in buildings, in particular in the Vikings' U.S. Bank
Stadium. Dr. Klem will address methods of successfully preventing collisions
by retrofitting existing structures and using bird-safe panes in remodeling
and new construction, and will offer recommendations on retrofitting the
stadium to make it safer for birds. Dr. Klem is Sarkis Acopian Professor of
Ornithology and Conservation Biology at Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania
and has studied bird-window collisions for more than 40 years. 


His presentation will be held at Springbrook Nature Center, 100 85th Avenue
NW, Fridley, MN, on Wednesday, March 21, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. The event is
free and open to the public, with a suggested donation of $5. The
presentation is sponsored by a coalition of bird conservation groups
including Audubon Chapter of Minneapolis, Minnesota Citizens for the
Protection of Migratory Birds, and Friends of Roberts Bird Sanctuary.
