The Juniata Valley Audubon Society meets at the library on Tuesday, February 18th. A meal is served at 6 PM with a program by Laura Palmer following at 6:45 PM. North American birds are more vulnerable than ever from rising temperatures and climate-related events like sea level rise, droughts, fires, and extreme weather. The good news is that if we take action now we can improve the chances for the majority of species at risk from climate change. Our birds are telling us that it’s time to act now.
