2014-2015 Speaker Schedule

  • September 18: Joe Liebezelt - Avian Conservation Manager, Portland Audubon - Klamath Refuges: Hard Times for Migratory Birds

    Join us September 18, as ASC kicks off its 2014-15 general membership meeting program. Our speaker will be Joe Liebezeit, Avian Conservation Program Manager for Portland Audubon Society since 2013. Joe holds a Master’s degree in Wildlife Management from Humboldt State University and has over twenty years’ experience as a wildlife biologist. Previously he worked for the Wildlife Conservation Society in Arctic Alaska.

    As we enter the second year of drought conditions throughout the west, water woes in the Klamath Basin are reaching a critical juncture. The system is under incredible stress, with not enough water to go around. The wildlife of the Klamath Basin, particularly migratory birds, are being hit incredibly hard. More than half of all Pacific Flyway birds depend on Klamath Basin wetlands, yet, another punishing drought year could dry up what few wetlands remain. In this landscape, nature bats last, with the National Wildlife Refuges literally at the bottom of the barrel for water rights in a highly over-allocated system.

    How did we get here? Joe will discuss the history of wildlife and water usage in the Klamath Basin and what you can do to help Klamath’s wildlife.
