NSAS February Meeting and Speaker Series Presents: A Birdie Big Year: Elevating Women Birders with Tiffany Kersten

Thursday February 9, 2023 - 7:00 PM

Tiffany Kersten didn't set out to do a big year, but after a series of unanticipated and serendipitous events, she suddenly found herself amidst one. As a sexual assault survivor, she spent 2021 traveling to all corners of the Lower 48 States, tallying birds and gifting personal safety alarms to women she met along the way. Her goal was to see 700 species, and to raise awareness of women's safety in the outdoors. Tiffany ended up surpassing her goal and setting a new Lower 48 Big Year record of 726. In her presentation, Tiffany will lead us through the fear,  empowerment, struggles and healing that all played vital roles in the personal growth she experienced on this wild adventure.

NSAS & Golden Gate Audubon Presents: A World on the Wing: The Global Odyssey of Migratory Birds with Scott Weidensaul

Thursday February 16, 2023 - 6:00 PM

Scientists continue to make astounding discoveries about the navigational and physiological feats that enable migratory birds to cross immense oceans or fly above the highest mountains, go weeks without sleep or remain in unbroken flight for months at a stretch. Scott Weidensaul, author of A World on the Wing(2021), takes us around the globe — with researchers in the lab probing the limits of what migrating birds can do, to the shores of the Yellow Sea in China, the remote mountains of northeastern India where tribal villages saved the greatest gathering of falcons on the planet, and the Mediterranean, where activists and police are battling bird poachers — to learn how people are fighting to understand and save the world’s great bird migrations. details...
