Community conservation in the neotropics: special program
« : October 11, 2013, 04:42:29 PM »
Rob Cahill, the founder of Community Cloud Forest Conservation,  will be in town next week and you are invited to hear his program Islands in the Clouds: Birds of the Cloud Forests of Guatemala’s Central Highlands--a  visually rich presentation focusing on cloud forest ecology, endemic birds, and the winter home of many of our migrant landbirds. Rob and his family have lived and worked in the conservation of cloud forests in Guatemala's central highlands for 12 years. CCFC just finished a two year grant in neotropical migratory bird conservation with US Fish and Wildlife and Cornell Lab of Ornithology.

Rob will discuss challenges to doing conservation in a developing country and offer a model for successful initiatives. He will give an update on the reforestation project undertaken in partnership with BCN.

The talk is at Margate Park Fieldhouse on the evening of Tuesday October 15 and it’s free; all the details are here:   http://chicagoregion.audubon.org/events/islands-clouds-birds-cloud-forests-guatemalas-central-highlands
