Join our Conservation Manager for a virtual tour of Crossways Preserve, where you'll learn more about its unique landscape of mature forest, wetland, and meadow habitat, as well as hear about conservation projects and our work to protect and restore species and habitats.
Aerial insectivores – swallows, nighthawks, martins, flycatchers, and swifts – are showing some of the greatest population declines among birds, and it’s unclear exactly why. Chimney swifts, whose populations have declined by 52% in PA over the last 60 years, serve as a “canary in the coal mine” for this suite of species. This presentation will cover their life histories, theories surrounding the reasons for decline and what you can do about it, as well as recent collaborative work among researchers seeking both to create habitat for swifts and to identify the drivers of population change.
Join us (in person or virtually) to help document the species on our preserves using iNaturalist. A BioBlitz is a community-science effort to record as many species within a designated location and time period as possible. We have designated 5 preserves that we are targeting to collect species information from, so grab your phone or camera and start observing.
