Dianne Taggart

Warblers!! Springtime brings beautiful warblers to Long Island! Come and join us as Dianne Taggart (long time LI birder) tells us all about these remarkable birds. Using photos and many interesting and fun facts, the evening will get you ready for spring migration and the return of the Warblers!!

Dianne Taggart has lived on LI all her life but came to be a birder late in life. However that quickly became a passion that has lasted for over 30 years. She ran the “LI Birds” website for many years and is currently the administrator for the “LI Birds” FaceBook Group.

Living on the Edge 
in the Face of 
Climate Change

Kevin McAllister 
Founding President, Defend H20, 
From the Source to the Sea, Defending Clean Water and the Coastal Zone

Natural shorelines, particularly ocean beaches are dynamic transitional zones which are regularly being altered by the forces of nature—wind, waves and currents. Beyond the obvious ecological importance to diverse array of marine and avian species, naturally functioning shorelines are critical buffers against the damaging effects of storm surge on coastal development. With sea level rise accelerating in response to climate change, the urgency to protect, restore and effectively manage transitional zones for ecological benefits and coastal resiliency is more critical than ever.

San Diego County: 
From the Ocean Over the 
Mountains to the Desert

Gail Delalla
Five hundred and forty bird species have been reported in San Diego County. We will explore the wide diversity of habitats from the Pacific Ocean to the Colorado Desert and view some of the representative species found in this premier birding county.

Gail DeLalla lives in San Diego County but spends two to three months a year on Long Island. She taught biology as an adjunct faculty member at California State University, East Bay for many years, and enjoys discovering the ecological relationships between plants and birds.
