Join wildlife biologist Karen Hussey at the April chapter meeting, for a glimpse into the amazing life of the Vaux’s Swift. Discover what makes swifts unique, how they are doing, what we still need to know, and how you can help locally! Karen will introduce a citizen science project and recruit volunteers who want to experience the migration magic here in the Rogue Valley.

Karen Hussey is a wildlife biologist with 13 years of experience working with birds as well as many other species ranging in size from moose to fairy shrimp. She’s been in the valley for eight years and currently is part of the stewardship team at Southern Oregon Land Conservancy. Hussey is a co-leader of the Medford Winter Raptor Survey run by East Cascades Audubon and serves on the board of the Oregon Chapter of The Wildlife Society. Other volunteer projects keeping her busy include fisher research, shorebird surveys, and of course Vaux’s Swift counts!

The Congregational Church meeting hall is located on the north side of East Jackson street just west of Barneburg Rd. Make a left turn into the church parking lot at the tree in the middle of the road.
