Join Jon Hayes from Audubon New Mexico for a presentation on the conservation of birds in New Mexico at the July Nature On Tap Monday, July 1 at 5:30 p.m. at projectY cowork Los Alamos, 150 Central Park Square.

Hayes will discuss the unique avian diversity found in the Land of Enchantment by discussing the species assemblages of three different habitat types: Pinyon-Juniper Woodlands, Riparian Forests, and Grasslands. He will also speak of the unique conservation challenges that each of these systems faces and present solutions that Audubon is pursuing to conserve the diversity of species that occupy these habitats.

On Tap is a series of discussions with a rotating theme each month. The Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) partners with the Creative District to host Nature On Tap. The Los Alamos Historical Society and Los Alamos Arts Council host History and Art On Tap, respectively. The Bradbury Science Museum hosts Science On Tap every month.

Registration for this event is not required. Admission is free. UnQuarked Wine Room by Sirphey will offer a selection of beverages for purchase at projectY cowork.
