About the event
The question at hand is this: How can we build climate resilient communities that embrace supporting and enhancing biodiversity? Bird-friendly communities may help us answer this question. Bird-friendly community practices provide a variety of climate benefits: save energy, reduce urban heat island effects, increase habitat for wildlife, enhance carbon sequestration, to name a few.
The Coalition for a Bird-Friendly Asheville, in partnership with the Blue Ridge Audubon Chapter and Case Consultants, invites you to join us at the Collider on March 9 th to learn about how bird-friendly community practices benefit more than just our feathered friends. We’ll meet representatives from a variety of public, private,vendors, and non-profit sectors. Through implementing bird-friendly community practices at a broad, multifaceted scale, Asheville can lead the way in building climate resilient, bird-friendly cities.
