EcoEducation: Audubon Minnesota: What's good for birds is good for people.

Katie Burns from Audubon Minnesota gave an engaging talk about the efforts of Audubon Minnesota to ensure that our community cares about the birds and understand why they are a good focal point for conservation efforts. 
Have you heard about the Mississippi Flyway?
Flyways are migration corridors that birds use to move from breeding grounds in the north to wintering grounds in the south.  Minnesota is within the Mississippi Flyway that hosts more than 325 migrating bird species - more than half of migrating birds.  It also hosts more than 40% of waterfowl.  Learn more about the Mississippi Flyway and the "priority birds."
Katie answered our many questions about local conservation actions and concerns for birds in urban environments. We enjoyed her passion for birds and for the Audubon Society.
