Please join us on April 18 for a presentation by national bird-glass collision expert Dr. Christine Sheppard, who will speak on "Why Birds Collide with Glass and How We Can Stop Them".
Dr. Sheppard is director of the Glass Collisions Program at the American Bird Conservancy in Virginia, where she researches avian visual ecology in order to evaluate and develop effective solutions to reduce bird mortality. She will discuss strategies for reducing bird mortality and will offer recommendations on retrofitting U.S. Bank Stadium -- which she will be visiting earlier that day -- to make it safer for birds. This is the second of three presentations addressing retrofit options for the stadium. Dr. Sheppard's presentation will be held at Beth El Synagogue, 5225 Barry Street W, St. Louis Park, MN, on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, at 6:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public, with a suggested donation of $5. It 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.
