At our February 25, 2019 meeting John Considine of Citizens Climate Lobby will present "Coping with Climate Change: People and Birds." Rising sea levels. Record rainfalls and droughts. Disappearance of key climate zones. Crop failures. How are humans—and birds—coping with climate change? How can we respond to this situation as individuals and as a society? Join us as John explores this crucial topic.
