Birds, Wildlands and Energy in the Arctic Description:
Please join Five Valleys Audubon Society on Monday, February 12, at 7:00 PM to hear our speaker, Stan Senner, present his talk on Birds, Wildlands and Energy in the Arctic.

Alaska's vast North Slope is home to about 10,000 mostly-Iñpuit residents, including in the northernmost community (Utqiagvik) in the United States. The North Slope also has a sprawling complex of industrial oil fields at Prudhoe Bay and beyond, and still-intact Arctic ecosystems with their full complements of native wildlife. Among the wildlife are millions of migratory birds that come from seven continents to nest on the tundra at places like Teshekpuk Lake, one of the most important habitats for birds in the global Arctic. Stan will highlight these Arctic-nesting birds and their amazing journeys. He will also share his insights from many years on the front lines of the on-going struggle to protect wildlife and wildlands as ever-expanding oil development and climate change threaten to transform America’s Arctic.

The meeting will be held in Room 110 in the Interdisciplinary Sciences Building (ISB) on the University of Montana campus. The building lies on the south end of campus on Beckwith Avenue between Maurice and Mansfield avenues. Due to our membership being composed of many older adults, masks are encouraged, but not required by the university.
