Program Description


Please join the Ridgefield Garden Club and partners for its annual Conservation Meeting, featuring Scott Weidensaul, a nationally recognized & renowned ornithologist, and author and naturalist, with a particular focus on remarkable feats of bird migration and the importance of protecting bird habitats.

He leads a number of ongoing research projects focusing on owls, hummingbirds and passerines (songbirds & perching birds) & lectures widely. Weidensaul is the author of Pulitzer Prize nominated Living on the Wind: Across the Hemisphere with Migratory Birds and is also the author of over two dozen books.

He combines his rigorous research with his talents as an evocative and engaging writer and speaker to bring to life the journeys of birds in a compelling way. “What Rachel Carson did for the sea - opening the public’s eyes to the fragile richness of whole ecosystems - Scott Weidensaul has now done for bird migration.” Caroline Fraser, Outside. For more information about this author please visit

This meeting is made possible by a gift from the Stoddard Family, as well generous support from Connecticut Audubon, The Ridgefield Library, and Bird & Beans Coffee.
