Reflections on a Transparent Problem: 
The Window/Bird Strike Issue 
and What You Can do

PRESENTOR: John Turner 

Collisions with windows cause the deaths of hundreds of millions of birds a year in North America, making it the second most significant cause of bird mortality. John Turner will discuss the dimension and details of the problem and provide ideas on ways to address the problem at your home and buildings in your community. 

John Turner currently works part-time in the Division of Land Management of the of the Town of Brookhaven involved in the Town’s open space and farmland protection program and also serves on a part-time basis as a Conservation Policy Advocate for the Seatuck Environmental Association, working on a variety of wildlife, open space, and water quality issues with specific focus on horseshoe crab and diamondback terrapin protection, reducing bird mortality from window collisions, and water reuse.  

John is a co-founder of the Long Island Pine Barrens Society and serves on its board. He is also a founding member of the Long Island Nature Organization (LINO). He is also on the board of the South Fork Natural History Society and the Four Harbors Audubon Society where he is Chair of the Conservation Committee. He also serves as Spokesperson to the Preserve Plum Island Coalition, an alliance working to secure the permanent protection of Plum Island.

He lives in the historic district of Setauket with his lovely wife Georgia, son Travis and three dogs – Henry, Daisy, and Emmy.

Pollinator Gardens to Pollinator Pathways
This talk will explore the importance of pollinators to our ecosystem, including their importance to birds. We'll discuss specific plants that can thrive in our area and talk about the ways we can provide a mosaic of pollinator-friendly gardens that together create a pathway.
Alicia Whitaker is a Master Gardener, 1st VP of the Westhampton Garden Club, and a member of the Eastern Long Island Audubon Society chapter. She is also a leader of the Suffolk Alliance for Pollinators (SAP) for the South Fork

Join us as we take a walk around QWR. Various Board Members will be leading this walk
