Wild Stories from the History of Bird Migration Research. This event is hybrid! Attend in-person or via livestream. Register for either version at the event website!

We’ve all heard amazing facts about bird migration—the long distances that birds travel, the ways that they navigate, etc. But did you ever wonder how we figured all of this out? While working for the American Ornithological Society, Rebecca Heisman became fascinated with the varied and creative techniques that scientists have used to study bird migration, and this eventually became the basis for her book Flight Paths: How a Passionate and Quirky Group of Pioneering Scientists Solved the Mystery of Bird Migration.

This event is supported by A Book For All Seasons. Heisman’s book will be available for purchase at the event.

Registration for the Keynote, as well as field trips, will open on March 26th.
