see details + America’s National Parks! With Scott Stoner and Denise Hackert-Stoner
Location: Bethlehem Public Library, 451 Delaware Ave., Delmar, NY 12054

Join our Audubon Chapter as we begin our Monthly Series of Programs!

In 2016 we celebrate the 100th birthday of our National Park Service!

America’s national parks are a model for the rest of the world, and we have plenty to be proud of. From Maine’s rocky coast to Florida’s everglades, through the great plains and badlands, to the mountains and deserts of the west, and on to the unique habitats of Alaska and Hawaii, the stunning beauty of our landscapes and fascinating diversity of wildlife are preserved through our National Park System.   

In this program we offer a photo" tour" of our parks from coast to coast.  We provide an in-depth look at these great places, from the popular large parks to the smaller and lesser known national monuments. Each is unique and each is eminently worth protecting.  We’ll also touch on some of the challenges that they face as we move into the second century of protecting some of America’s greatest assets.

Speakers: 

Scott Stoner is past president of both the Audubon Society of the Capital Region and the Hudson-Mohawk Bird ClubDenise Hackert-Stoner is a past officer of the Club as well as a field trip leader. Prior to moving to the Capital Region, 
Denise and Scott’s nature photography has been exhibited widely across New York’s Capital Region and published in National Wildlife Magazine, The Kingbird, New York State Conservationist, the New York Wildlife Viewing Guide and the 2016 book, In Praise of Poison Ivy. They have presented numerous programs about the beauty and breadth of the natural history they have experienced while birding and photographing both here in the Capital Region and across North America.  You can see some of their work at www.naturelogues.com or at www.facebook.com/Naturelogues/

see details + Helderberg Escarpment Hawk Watch Migration Festival

Each year thousands of raptors - diurnal birds of prey- migrate through our Capital Region on their way south for the winter. Each September these magnificent creatures are monitored while soaring over the Helderberg Escarpment and celebrated at our Annual Hawk Festival at the Thacher Park Overlook.

This year’s festival will be Saturday, September 10, 2016 from 10:00 am through 3:00 pm. Richele Ford, local raptor specialist, will once again present a variety well cared-for, rehabilitated birds of prey and share her knowledge about these members of our mutual ecosystem. John Loz of the Audubon Society of the Capital Region will be there to explain the new partnership between with Will Aubry’s Hawk Watch and provide another viewpoint of how these birds and this migration contribute to our natural world.
