The Rush to Save a Thrush! Wednesday March 31 at 7:00 pm

Chris Rimmer from The Vermont Center for Ecostudies will lead this informative program about the Bicknell's Thrush, a land bird species of highest conservation concern in North America. The species is at risk from a variety of threats to its breeding habitats, including recreational development, telecommunication construction, wind-power development, acidic precipitation, mercury deposition, and climatic warming.

This program is part of a series that is created through a collaboration with the Springfield Town Library, Ascutney Mountain Audubon and The Nature Museum. It is partially funded by the Wellborn Ecology Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.

For more information please contact The Nature Museum at 802-843-2111 or email or call the library at 802-885-3108.
