Making Chicago’s Buildings Safe for Birds: November 13th

An amazing migration of bird life takes place through the United States twice each year, and Chicago gets more than its share. However, up to a billion birds are killed each year in the U. S. as a result of window collisions. Now Chicago birding organizations have joined to address the problem.
Join Annette Prince, Director of Chicago Bird Collision Monitors and Carl Giometti, architect and president of the Chicago Ornithological Society, as they discuss the bird-safe building laws that are currently being developed in Chicago and around the region, share bird-friendly building designs and practices, and discuss how to become a bird-safe building advocate.
November 13th. Socializing at 7:00 p.m. Program begins at 7:15 p.m. For questions, call Chicago Audubon’s office at 773-539-6793.
Everyone welcome.

Location: North Park Village Nature Center,5801 N. Pulaski Rd., Chicago, IL 60646
