Each year since 2006 the Connecticut Audubon Society has helped set the conservation agenda for the state by publishing its annual Connecticut State of the Birds report.
The 2019 report will be officially released on Thursday, December 5. The title is, “An Improved Long Island Sound Faces Unpredictable Change. Can Birds, Fish, Conservationists, & Government Adapt?”
“The 2019 Connecticut State of the Birds, titled “An Improved Long Island Sound Faces Unpredictable Change”, is a powerful review of the Long Island Sound situation focused on the Waters, Wild Shores, Birds, Wishes and Key Rivers and Waterways. Congratulations.” – John L. Forbis, Old Lyme
“As always, I am so impressed by the quality this report.” – Liz Acas, New Haven
We’re pleased to announced that Oak Lawn Cemetery & Arboretum, in Fairfield, has become the sponsor of the 2019 report. Oak Lawn’s 100 acres includes an accredited arboretum and over 40 acres of preserved woodlands and wetlands that provide habitat for all wildlife.
