Our guest speaker, Mr. Chandler S. Robbins, will present
"My 70th Anniversary At The USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center"
In his own words, Chandler will share with us an historical look back at his remarkable seven decades of contributions to modern ornithology and bird conservation, including coauthoring "Birds Of North America" ("Golden Guide"), development of the North American Breeding Bird Survey, his research on the effects of forest fragmentation on bird populations, his extensive work with neotropical migrants in Latin America and more.
Chandler is a Research Wildlife Biologist Emeritus at the USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Laurel, MD. As a research scientist and author of over 650 papers, books, maps and articles, he is one of the most respected and influential ornithologists of this country and the world. As a member of the Brookline Bird Club, his visit during our 100th anniversary holds a very special significance. Chandler was born in Belmont, MA in 1918 and at the age of 12 in 1930 he joined the Junior Department of the BBC. A life member, at the age of 95 he has been a member of the Club for 83 years! That makes Chandler the oldest living, longest-standing member of the Club...
Social hour and light refreshments will begin at 6:30 PM. Don't forget your cameras and don't forget your Golden Guides as Chandler will be happy to sign them. Meeting and lecture will begin at 7:30 PM.
