Avians in Aviation - Natalie Reeder

 

Natalie Reeder

Natalie Reeder is a Wildlife Biologist at the East Bay Regional Park District. Over the course of her career, Natalie has worked with a variety of organisms, from Channel Island foxes to Lyme disease and sudden oak death, endangered reptiles and amphibians, and, of course, birds. Natalie became the first biologist at SFO in 2015 and served in that role for seven and a half years, building a natural resources program and science-based approach to wildlife hazard management in the airport environment. Especially interesting was a project to trap and relocate barn owls and red-tailed hawks, both species that are frequently hit by planes. Natalie will discuss wildlife issues at airports in general and share details of her time managing bird hazards at our busiest Bay Area airport.

The Bay Area Puma Project (BAPP) began in 2007 and is the first large scale research project, education, and conservation program for pumas in and around the San Francisco Bay Area. BAPP's primary goal is to increase knowledge, understanding, and awareness about Bay Area puma populations, in order to help foster a more harmonious relationship between humans and the natural world.

Alys Granados is a Wildlife ecologist with Felidae Conservation Fund and the Bay Area Puma Project, where she works with the Felidae team to study the effects of human encroachment on mountain lion persistence and health in urban edge environments. Alys previously worked on research projects in Canada, Malaysia, Cameroon, Uganda, Costa Rica, and Chile. She completed a PhD in Zoology at the University of British Columbia and her Master at Concordia University in Canada.

North American Warblers: A Celebration – Joe Morlan

 

In addition to warbler identification and natural history, we will focus on their beauty, charm, and history of being THE bird family that birders can't get enough of. Joe will be sharing original photos taken in California, Texas and Ohio illustrating the great diversity of North American warblers. Join us for this entertaining and thought-provoking presentation. Joe Morlan taught Field Ornithology at City College in San Francisco for forty years. He was awarded the ABA's Ludlow Griscom Award for outstanding contributions to regional ornithology in 2010 and served on the California Bird Records Committee for thirty years, most recently as chair. He's co-authored two books on birds and published numerous scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals.
