Brandywine Conservancy Offers Bird Migration Lecture On April 2 In Chester County

The arrival of Spring marks many opportunities to observe bird migration. Everything from colorful songbirds to soaring raptors to graceful shorebirds will either pass through our region or stay to nest.
During the Brandywine Conservancy’s next lecture in its Stewardship Series on April 2, learn about how and why birds migrate, where to see birds during migration seasons and how "citizen scientists" can add to knowledge about bird migration.
Presented by Laurie Goodrich, Ph.D., and Holly Merker, the Conservancy’s Stewardship Series: Bird Migration lecture will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Brandywine River Museum of Art’s River Room, 1 Hoffman’s Mill Road, Chadds Ford, Chester County.
Dr. Goodrich is the Sarkis Acopian Director of Conservation Science at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary—the renowned raptor research center in Berks County. She has coordinated Hawk Mountain’s annual migration count for more than 30 years and has conducted research on both raptors and songbirds.
Ms. Merker is an Environmental Educator Birding Instructor and Pennsylvania eBird Lead Data Reviewer. She also teaches watershed ecology to school students, leads birding tours and is a volunteer migration counter at Hawk Mountain.
Admission is $5 per person; free for members and Brandywine Conservancy easement landowners. Light refreshments will be provided. Tickets can be purchased online for this special event.
