Heads up, Humboldt:
While the county's masking mandate has been lifted, Public Health is still strongly recommending masking indoors in public, social distancing and "avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces." COVID-19 is still with us, so be sure to check the protocols at event venues.


Why Birds Matter

When: Fri., July 10, 7:30-9 p.m. 2015

Join Redwood Region Audubon Society for a presentation entitled “Why Birds Matter - The Role of Ecosystem Services, Economics, and Ethics in Bird Conservation.” Speaker Dr. Matt Johnson, professor of wildlife management at Humboldt State University, specializes in the habitat ecology of birds. Many value birds for their recreational and aesthetic attributes, but few know that birds also supply “ecosystem services” that help sustain human life. Dr. Johnson will review how ecologists quantify the value of biodiversity and give examples involving birds. He also will recommend ways to advance bird conservation. Bring a mug for coffee and come fragrance free.
