GUEST SPEAKER: Rebecca McGuire of WCS Arctic Beringia
Birding for many of us means spotting a life bird, snapping a photo, and entering it and a count into an app. Our guest Rebecca McGuire, Avian Ecologist of WCS Arctic Beringia Program, grew up in the wilderness of rural Alaska, without electricity or running water, and learned from books and observation of wildlife. That is where her appreciation for migratory birds of the tundra regions flourished. Join us for activities and a discussion in celebration of Migratory Bird Day! We will discuss the significance of tracking systems, Rebecca’s conservation identity story, and her experience “counting eiders migrating past while on the pack ice at the absolute edge of North America with polar bears appearing as if by magic every time I scanned the ice around me.”
The WCS Education call center is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Please feel free to contact our registrars by phone (800-433-4149) or email (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
