Speaker Series with Jason Hall: “History of Birding and Ornithology among Black and Brown Communities”

Tuesday, April 19th, 7:00-9:00pm

Join us as we explore the history of birding and ornithology among Black and Brown communities. We will discuss some of the pivotal figures in history, as well as some current figures in birding and ornithology. We will also discuss what we can do as a community to continue opening doors and removing historically systemic obstacles that have prevented Black and Brown birders from participating safely in the outdoors.
