MNHO will be hosting a virtual presentation on swallow monitoring and conservation with Mara Silver. Mara is the founder of Swallow Conservation, a nonprofit in Western Massachusetts that works to study and conserve Cliff Swallows, Barn Swallows, and Tree Swallows. Her presentation will focus on the status of swallows in Maine and New England, the efforts underway to monitor them, and exciting new methods to help these birds that you can participate in!  Stay posted for more details by following us on Facebook or Instagram or check back here.
