Bird Friendly Design in the Built Environment
April 21, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
There has never been a greater need to re-connect with the ecosystems surrounding us, and we are lucky to share our built environment with a surprising variety of birds. Unfortunately in cities designed for people, birds are often endangered by the very design elements we use to make them friendlier for ourselves. There are however many exciting ways that we can shape our built environment to benefit both birds and people alike, and these methods have the potential to help build a truly greener city for all.
Please join us together with our charity partner and panel of professionals for a night of learning and discussion around how to protect our feathered friends in the built environment.
