Blue Ridge Audubon October Virtual Program
Tuesday October 20, 7 p.m. at our Facebook page
Flocking Towards Inclusive Birding

Blue Ridge Audubon is thrilled to present urban ecologist and science communicator Deja Perkins at our October program. Deja will talk about her research in urban ecology, participation in bird watching, and how birders can move towards making birding more welcoming to all people. Take a dive into urban birding and learn about inequalities in urban green spaces. Discover how the birding community can contribute to a more inclusive landscape of research and recreation.

Deja Perkins earned her Master of Science at North Carolina State University and was an Audubon NC 2020 Coastal Resilience intern. Deja is an emerging expert on urban ecology and environmental equity and one of the co-organizers of the #BlackBirdersWeek social media movement.
