With generous funding from National Audubon, Audubon’s Long Island Climate Conference is a joint effort of Audubon New York, North Fork Audubon Society and the other Audubon Chapters.
The event will be held on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at the Sisters of St. Joseph’s in Brentwood Long Island.
Audubon’s Birds and Climate Change Report found that 314 North American bird species could lose more than half of their current ranges by 2080 due to global warming. To protect birds from the worst impacts of climate change, you can make a difference through simple actions at home, in your community, and politically at large.
Zach Slavin, Program Manager of Climate Watch, will be delivering the keynote address on how citizen and community science helps us understand how birds are responding in a changing climate.
Participants will also hear about the importance of turning sound conservation science into political action on local, state and national scales.
Lastly, regional experts will speak on steps Long Island can take to further reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Featured breakout sessions will cover native plant ordinances, advancing clean energy solutions, mitigating sea level rise and more.
