SNOW HILL — The Delmarva Bird Conservation Series presented by Lower Shore Land Trust and Eastern Shore Land Conservancy has some unique places it wants to show off in July.
On Monday, July 18, tour a recent habitat creation project by boat and learn about the partnership between Audubon Mid-Atlantic, Maryland DNR, Maryland Coastal Bays Program and USFWS. The nesting rafts project in the Coastal Bays provide a safe nesting site for Common Terns, a species which have undergone serious declines due to sea level rise.
This was the first seabird nesting raft ever attempted in the Mid-Atlantic. Despite a slow start, a total of 20 nesting pairs by mid-summer has given hope to the team.
This event is limited to 30 attendees with limited seats remaining. Tickets are $35. Register at https://www.lowershorelandtrust.org/bird-conservation-series
On Tuesday, July 26, join a free Economics of Bird Conservation virtual workshop by leaders on bird conservation. Learn how birds are driving conservation funding and what more can be done.
Birding is a growing activity around the world, and here on Delmarva, the trends are also on the rise. What does that mean for bird conservation?
Learn from an exceptional panel of experts about the economics of bird conservation. Sara Barker from Cornell Lab of Ornithology Center for Avian Population Studies, Jim Rapp, Community Conservation Consulting and Delmarva Birding Weekends, David Satterfield from Eastern Shore Land Conservancy, and Jared Parks from Lower Shore Land Trust will highlight how birds have the power to amplify conservation, stewardship and community outreach.
