Join the Wisconsin Academy for "Birds and Beyond", an exciting series set in Wisconsin's diverse landscapes, taking place from August 2024 to March 2025. This immersive journey delves deep into the intricate world of birds and their connections to broader scientific topics, including water quality, conservation, climate change, and astronomy, as well as the arts and letters. This series will take place in four events in different regions of the state, with all events being live streamed to a virtual audience. In-person attendees will have the opportunity to go birding with the featured speakers in Wisconsin’s beautiful and birdy natural areas. The series will culminate in March 2025 with a keynote presentation by esteemed naturalist Christian Cooper in Madison. Registration for the first event in August will be available soon.
