Event Details

  • Join us for our 2019 Fall Speaker Series at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, exploring new ideas and cutting-edge science by leaders in the field of ornithology!

    Dr. Rebecca Safran
    Associate Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Colorado.
    Oct. 22, 2019 | 7:00 p.m.

    Barn swallows are one of the most widely distributed vertebrates on Earth. With six different subspecies, these birds provide an exciting opportunity to study environmental adaptation, including to the built environment of our own species. Dr. Rebecca Safran will share insights from her group’s work on barn swallows along the Front Range and around the world. These investigations show how behaviors related to migratory and mate selection shape population boundaries, leading to more understanding of the origin and breakdown of biodiversity.

    Promotional support provided by Audubon Rockies and Audubon Denver.

    $12 Bird Conservancy of the Rockies, Audubon and DMNS members, $15 nonmember
