Sarah Flourney from Houston Audubon will be talking about their “Bird Friendly Communities” initiative.
Birds are a fascinating way to explore the value of both large prairie systems and smaller pocket prairies. In addition to providing updates on Houston Audubon’s Bird-Friendly Communities vision and plans for the coming year, the program will highlight Houston’s iconic grassland bird species, where to find them in prairies, and how to manage habitat to support them.
Sarah Flournoy is the Program Manager for Houston Audubon’s newest initiative, Bird Friendly Communities, which focuses on Houston’s resident and migrating birds. These programs aim to improve habitat for birds, support urban wildlife, and make Houston a happier, healthier place for people. Sarah is a native Houstonian and lifelong learner with a particular interest in how connection to nature improves physical and mental wellbeing. Sarah is also a member of the Texas Regional Council of the National Parks Conservation Association, a board member of The Woods Project, and an advisory board member of Houston Wilderness.
This meeting will be held at the Old Golf Course Clubhouse, 6201 Hermann Park Drive.
