If you are unable to attend the NCPIF meeting, here's an alternative! Below is a message from Judith Scarl, the AFWA Bird Conservation Coordinator:
As you may know, in 2016 we will celebrate the Centennial of the signing of the Treaty for the Protection of Migratory Birds with Canada. The goals of the Centennial include creating awareness, promoting key actions, increasing support, and expanding opportunities for engagement in the conservation of migratory birds. The Migratory Bird Treaty Centennial is an opportunity for the bird conservation community – including state agencies, federal agencies and NGOs – to highlight bird conservation success stories as well as communicate the critical importance of continuing to invest in bird conservation.
We hope that many states will join the effort to promote continued bird and bird habitat conservation both throughout the continent and on national, statewide, or local scales, and the USFWS and key partners have developed an excellent set of resources that you can use in your state.
On Tuesday, Nov. 17 at 1 p.m. Eastern time, USFWS National Migratory Bird Treaty Centennial Coordinator Rachel Levin will present a webinar focusing on how states can be involved in this unprecedented opportunity to engage conservation partners, Congress, and the American public to increase support and promote everyday actions for bird conservation across the nation and beyond its borders.
We hope you’ll join us for this presentation and discussion!
