Bird conservation plan to be discussed

Written by 

A plan to help prevent declines in North American bird populations will be presented at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 16, at the Macon County Public Library.

Dennis Desmond, stewardship coordinator for Mainspring Conservation Trust, will present the landbird conservation plan developed by the organization Partners in Flight. The presentation will explain the structure behind PIF’s Species of Continental Concern Watch List — with a focus on the Appalachian Mountain region — as well as strategies for keeping common birds common and helping species at risk. Desmond will also discuss Mainspring’s own conservation plan, under development in partnership with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

Free. Part of the Franklin Bird Club’s regular meeting. 828.524.5234 or www.franklinbirdclub.com.
