Crisis In The Gulf - What is Happening and What You Can Do

Audubon Ohio invites you to a special presentation:

The environmental impact of what is now reckoned as the largest oil spill in U. S. history continues to unfold. Oil is now being seen from Louisiana to Florida, and there are fears that the loop current will carry it up the Atlantic Coast. Audubon has hundreds of staff and volunteers on the ground helping with recovery efforts.

Please join us in Cleveland on Thursday, July 22nd to hear an update directly from experts on the ground in the Gulf Coast states about the impacts on wildlife and how everyone can help not only clean up the mess, but make sure it never happens again. This important discussion will feature the National Audubon Society's Director of Bird Conservation, Dr. Greg Butcher, who has been tirelessly assisting with the recovery efforts. A recent sobering article in USA Today features Greg's comments on how birds are being impacted by the oil spill.

This event is sponsored by Audubon Ohio and the National Wildlife Federation and is open to the public but registration is requested.

Light appetizers and cash bar available.
