CONNECTICUT COASTAL BIRDS & CLIMATE CHANGE, JUNE 12th WEST HAVEN LAND TRUST SPONSORS 2ND PROGRAM FOR 2013
Hear From the Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds & “The Climate Reality Project”
WEST HAVEN, CT – Hear Scott Kruitbosch, Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds, talk about the shorebirds of the Connecticut coastline, with a particular focus on the health of the coastal birds that make West Haven their home. Following refreshments, Peter Libre, MD, will speak on behalf of “The Climate Reality Project,” an organization dedicated to educating the public about the scientific realities of climate change and actions we can take to minimize our impact. Dr. Libre will focus on the science behind climate change and the connection between our actions (particularly the consumption of fossil fuels) and the climate. He will also share his experiences in adopting a low-carbon lifestyle, and offer concrete examples of simple things we in West Haven can do to shrink our own ecological footprints. Join us on June 12th, 7:00PM at Saint John Vianney Church Hall, 300 Captain Thomas Blvd., West Haven, CT.
This is the second of four programs being hosted by the Land Trust of West Haven in 2013. “We are pleased to have Scott Kruitbosch speaking about shorebirds, a signature of the West Haven landscape, followed by Dr. Libre, who will share his expertise on climate change,” said Land Trust President, Barbara Barry. “Anyone interested in these issues is welcome to attend and we encourage everyone to bring their questions and concerns.”
All programs are on a Wednesday evening and begin at 7:00 PM. We encourage and look
forward to public participation and involvement in these programs
Audubon Alliance for Coastal Waterbirds, Audubon Connecticut and the
Connecticut Audubon Society partnering to improve conditions for coastal
waterbirds in Connecticut.
