Martha Jordan: Washington’s White Birds of Winter – Swans and Snow Geese

February 5, 2024 @ 7:30 pm
Online only

Martha Jordan will speak on Washington’s White Birds of Winter – Swans and Snow Geese

Since the late 1970s, well-known swan biologist Martha Jordan has contributed enormously to understanding the life history of swans and Snow Geese, their biology and what influences their distribution across our state and the Pacific flyway. She wrote the state’s first Trumpeter Swan management plan in 1985, and is a member of Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Waterfowl Advisory Group.

These birds face a changing landscape in migration and on their wintering grounds, and are confronted by habitat issues, avian influenza, swan lead poisoning and more. Martha will detail these challenges to our White Birds of Winter, and what is needed to ensure their future.
