Upcoming Meeting:

April 23, 2015
American Birds and Climate Change
The Nasketucket Bird Club will present a program on climate change and birds.
Recent research by the National Audubon Society science team indicates that North American birds may suffer significant losses due to climate change. Over half of North American species (314 of 588 species studied) are considered to be threatened or endangered by climate change, as they may face a loss of over 50% of their current ranges. Conservation data specialist Tom Auer will explain how Audubonís science team made their findings and what we can all do to help birds through an uncertain future. The program will be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 23, 2015 at the Mattapoisett Public Library, 7 Barstow Street. The meeting is free and open to the public. For more information contact Carolyn Longworth at
