Avian migration is one of the most beautiful events on earth. From the clamorous departure of Geese flying north overhead to the cautious arrival of Songbirds in spring, these ancient feats of orientation, navigation, and critical fuel management are all around us. Join us for a webinar with Matthew Dodder, Executive Director of the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society, and learn how this behavior evolved, how it works, and why it may be at risk. We will also explore ways you can observe migration in your own back yard.
The session will be recorded and a video link will be shared following the event.

PRESENTER:Matthew Dodder is the Executive Director of the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society. He began his lifelong study of birds in 1977 as a boy in Boston. He has traveled widely in search of exotic species such as the Southern Cassowary, the Greater Racquet-tailed Drongo and the Resplendent Quetzal. He enjoys birding everywhere, especially in California where our coast, mountains, deserts, and grasslands offer a spectacular variety of birds including some found nowhere else in the world. Matthew’s passions also include drawing, design, and cooking. Before taking his current position at Audubon, he taught birding at the Palo Alto Adult School for more than 20 years where he learned first hand how much joy the study of birds can awaken in students.
