Topic: “Development and the Impact on our Bird Populations”
Daniel Klem, Ph.D., the world’s leading expert and researcher on this issue, says “up to a billion birds are killed each year, more than pesticides and oils spills!” The Sarcis Acopian professor of Ornithology and Conservation Biology at Muhlenberg College has been researching bird collisions and consulting on the construction of buildings using glass for many years.
Join us as he shares his vast knowledge of birds and the possible solutions to this problem. Professor Klem will also address the buildings that are part of the downtown Allentown development, in relation to the local bird population.
The public is invited! Please tell your family, colleagues and friends.
To make a reservation, contact firstname.lastname@example.org by March 8.
The cost of the buffet luncheon is $11 payable at door, or you may listen to the speaker without eating lunch.

Every ten years, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania redraws electoral boundaries after results of the decennial census are tabulated.
Will this be done in a way that is transparent, impartial, and fair to the voters? Or will we continue to see gerrymandered districts that preserve safe seats for legislators?
