Norwalk River Watershed Association added an event.

Join us for a presentation on Plum Island, home to over 200 bird species, about a quarter of all birds known in the U.S., 57 of which are listed as in urgent need of conservation. Learn how you can help preserve this incredible public resource from the threat of development. Chris Cryder, Special Projects Coordinator for Save the Sound and the outreach coordinator for the Preserve Plum Island Coalition, will present a short film produced for PBS, “Conservation of a Precious Island” starring Sam Waterston as well as the latest efforts to protect the island. Located in eastern Long Island Sound, the island has been home to the nation’s foreign animal disease center, which is now relocating. The island has also served as a de facto wildlife refuge for the last 60 years and is home to several endangered species and unique habitats. Now, Plum Island is slated to be sold by the federal government to the highest bidder. Many organizations would rather see the amazing island conserved and are fighting to save it. This presentation is co-sponsored by the Ridgefield Library, Ridgefield Conservation Commission, Woodcock Nature Center and the Norwalk River Watershed Association, which is hosting the talk for its annual meeting. All are welcome! Photograph by Robert Lorenz. Please register at RidgefieldLibrary.org.http://www.ridgefieldlibrary.org/news_events/.
