Join us on The Public Good! On today's radio show, Jay Burney, Special Projects Director for Pollinator Conservation Association, is with us to talk about the 3rd annual Birds on the Niagara festival ( It’s an international celebration of winter birds designed to promote an outdoor celebration of winter, encourage tourism, and inspire economic development using a conservation perspective. We talk about the keynote speaker, J. Drew Lanham - wildlife biologist and author of "9 Rules for the Black Birdwatcher," "Birding While Black," and much more. We learn some cool facts about how crows view us, and we realize just how vital the Niagara River is from a conservation perspective on a worldwide scale. Whether you’re a birdwatcher, an outdoorsy type, or you simply like to watch Netflix nature documentaries, you won’t want to miss this one.
