CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE

All feld trips have been canceled until further notice. We will continue to asses the situation and update this space accordingly. Going outside and enjoying nature is a great way to relieve stress and pass these trying times. We encourage you to do so while practicing responsible social distancing.

Our in-person meetings at the Matthaei Botanical Gardens have been suspended until the University allows gatherings to take place. To view our online Zoom programs, you will need access to an internet-capable computer, phone, or similar device. An announcement of the web address to view the program will be on our web site, Facebook page, and on the Birders email list a few days before the program. We may also add more online programs for July and August, which will be announced on the same internet platforms.

The Kirtland’s Warbler, once on the brink of extinction, was removed from the Endangered Species List in 2019. There are lots of reasons to celebrate, but we can't say we're done and walk. The continuing conservation of the Kirtland’s Warbler has special challenges. The Kirtland's Warbler is "conservation reliant," which means that humans will need to continue to intervene on its behalf for as long as we can see into the future. But, that intervention will include some bold new thinking.

Bill Rapai is executive director of the Kirtland’s Warbler Alliance, a nonprofit formed in 2013 to support Kirtland's Warbler conservation. He is also the author of The Kirtland’s Warbler: The story of a bird’s fight for survival and the people who saved it, published in 2012 by University of Michigan Press.
