Spring Audubon Talk: Molly Adams, Founder of the Feminist Bird Club
March 20, 2020, 6:00 pm–7:30 pm
Join us for our fourth seasonal Audubon Talk with special guest Molly Adams, founder of the Feminist Bird Club and Advocacy and Outreach Manager for New York City Audubon. Molly strives to connect people to conservation of the natural world through education, outreach, and advocacy. As an avid bird watcher and novice bird-bander, the need for immediate conservation efforts for many species inspires her participation in NYC Audubon’s efforts for bird-friendly building legislation and other conservation policy actions at the local, state, and federal levels.
In 2016, Molly founded the Feminist Bird Club, a bird watching club in New York City for LGBTQIA+ folks, women, and people of color. This club acts as a safe way for birders of all backgrounds and gender identities to get outdoors in urban areas while also fundraising for basic human rights. After a feature in The New York Times, versions of the club were started in Boston, Chicago, Michigan, Toronto, Seattle, and Buenos Aires—with more in the works. Molly holds an MA in marine conservation and policy from Stony Brook’s School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences and a BA in critical and visual studies from Pratt Institute, with an emphasis on sustainability and natural history museums.
The details: Reception will be from 6–6:30 p.m. with the talk running from 6:30–7:30 p.m. Location info TBD. Check back here for more details soon! For more information, please email us.
