You won’t want to miss this extra-special presentation by Stan Senner, the Vice President of Bird Conservation for the National Audubon Society. The birds of the Pacific Flyway depend on a diverse chain of habitats, from Arctic tundra and northwestern rainforest to tropical beaches and mangroves. Each year at least a billion birds migrate along the Pacific Flyway, with each individual facing a host of threats along the way. Stan brings his knowledge from a 40-year career as a bird conservationist and his experience as a coordinator for science and restoration programs after the Exxon Valdez oil spill and tracker of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico. Come early to view the entries from the North Central Washington Audubon chapter bird photography competition! Photo by Tom Grey. Originally published October 2018
