NOTE: We are cancelling Wednesday's program because of the weather. 
We will try to reschedule for a later date.

Between 365 million to 1 billion birds are killed by window collisions in the United States each year.  By getting involved with collision prevention and monitoring efforts, you can help.  Kim Nelson, Skagit Audubon Society, will examine the effectiveness, aesthetics, and affordability of window treatments used in collision prevention as well as collision monitoring programs on Wednesday, January 15, 7 p.m., at the Island County Multi-Purpose Center, 141 N East Camano Drive (Blue Building). There will also be examples of window treatments.

Kim Nelson has a MA in Biology from Miami University.  Her studies focused on community engagement regarding avian conservation issues with an emphasis in bird-window collision prevention at zoological facilities.  She recently joined Skagit Audubon Society and has been assisting with educational programs and field trips.

The Camano Wildlife Habitat Project, sponsored by Friends of Camano Island Parks, hosts public presentations the third Wednesday of the month.  For information, call 360-387-2236, visit www.camanowildlifehabitat.org, or email camanowildlifehabitat@gmail.com.
