Bird Migration and the Hudson River Flyway Wednesday June 20th, 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Tom Lake will be presenting on the north-south migration of birds and habitat changes.

Program Description: For at least the last 12,000 years, the Hudson River Flyway has been a critical north-south conduit for migratory birds. Users of the flyway, from butterflies to hummingbirds, waterfowl to water birds, and raptors have adapted to the changing environment. However, in historic times, there has been a slow deterioration of habitat and carrying capacity due to natural and unnatural events, from climate change, human ignorance and apathy, to invasive species.” During the presentation, Lake will outline and explain some of the changes already affecting the quality of the flyway as well as those that are looming ahead.

Tom was born in the Hudson Valley and has lived in this region all his life except for his two-year military service in Vietnam 1968-1969. As a Hudson Valley archaeologist, he understands the natural history of the Valley through experience and education. He holds a BA from SUNY New Paltz and an MA from SUNY Albany, both in Anthropology.  Tom has been an estuary naturalist and educator for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation for the past 24 years and continues his position as editor of the NYSDEC Hudson River Almanac, an online natural history journal that presently has more than 18,000 readers.
