DEEP Presentation of the CT Bird Atlas Project

December 12 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Come to Great Hollow on Tuesday, December 12th to hear a presentation about the exciting and long-awaited Connecticut Bird Atlas Project. The Connecticut Bird Atlas is being led by the CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and the University of Connecticut, and aims to (1) better understand breeding bird distribution and abundance in the state, (2) document changes in bird species distributions since the last atlas that was conducted in the 1980’s, (3) understand the distribution of overwintering birds in the state, (4) identify important stopover habitats for migrants, and (5) establish predictive relationships about where species occur on the landscape.  The results of this statewide, 5-year initiative will be publicly available on an interactive website and of myriad uses to government agencies, conservation organizations, environmental consultants, and other stakeholders throughout Connecticut who are involved in the conservation of our natural resources. Its success will depend on the volunteer support of the birding community, so if you are a birder and are interested in getting involved, please come to the presentation to hear about how you can help out.  The presentation will be given by Dr. Min Huang of the CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Dr. Huang has been a wildlife biologist for the Department for the past 16 years and heads the agency’s Migratory Bird Program.  He is also an adjunct research scientist at the University of Connecticut.
