NSAS Monthly Speaker Series: Biking for Birds with Dorian Anderson

Thursday October 12, 2023 - 7:00 PM

On January 1st, 2014, Dorian Anderson boarded his bicycle for what would prove the adventure of a lifetime. His two-wheeled permutation was an eco-friendly twist on the Big Year classic, a year-long project during which a birdwatcher tries to observe as many species as possible. While his predecessors utilized cars, planes, boats, and even helicopters, Andersonís goal was to replicate their transcontinental efforts without the use of petroleum, a herculean challenge no one before him had accepted. He ultimately survived subzero temperatures, many feet of snow, gusting winds, lightning storms, mountainous ascents, dog attacks, crumbling roads, and accidents of various sorts in the process of amassing 18,000 miles and 618 species, totals no one imagined possible when he departed Massachusetts without an ounce of relevant cycling experience.
