Thursday, April 18 – Program. Dave Curson, MD Audubon. “Bird conservation in Maryland’s threatened Salt Marshes”. 7:30 PM, Caroline County Public Library, 100 Market St., Denton.
Maryland’s tidal salt marshes are home to several uniquely specialized birds like the Saltmarsh Sparrow and the Black Rail. The future for these species is not rosy because the entire salt marsh ecosystem is threatened by sea level rise, caused by climate change and other factors. Audubon carried out a survey of salt marsh birds across the Eastern Shore in 2011-12 and is now completing a series of strategies to help salt marshes in the Chesapeake Bay adapt to sea level rise. David Curson, Director of Bird Conservation at Audubon Maryland-DC, will elaborate on these threats to salt marsh birds and what can be done about them.
