You can help conservation efforts by bird watching this weekend – WBEZ Chicago


You can help conservation efforts by bird watching this weekend
Chicago sits amidst two important migration flyways. And conservationists say that your participation in the Great Backyard Bird Count this weekend will help gather data that they’ll use to identify how climate change affects bird population and migration.
Reset checks in with a conservationist and an amateur birder about what can be gained from taking a moment to stop and notice birds.
GUESTS: Christina Harber, member of Chicago’s BIPOC Birder Network
Erin Rowan, Senior Conservation Associate, Audubon Great Lakes
Karen Weigert, executive vice president at Slipstream, a clean energy innovation non-profit; former chief sustainability officer, City of Chicago
