Event description

Description

Birds see the world differently. Architecture can kill, but does it have to? This panel presentation & discussion will provide information and resources to architectural design team members as well as others interested in the physical and built campus environment. As our buildings get larger and glazing of our facades increases, what can we do as planners, engineers, architects, ecologists, landscape architects, and facility managers to understand the importance of bird friendly design and the human relationship we have with them. Why do birds matter? Is this really an issue? What are other organizations and cities doing? Is retrofit an option? How can UW-Madison support this important topic?

Presentation & Discussion Panelists:

Stanley Temple - Professor Emeritus, UW-Madison Forest & Wildlife Ecology/Senior Fellow, Aldo Leopold Foundation
Matt Reetz - Executive Director, Madison Audubon http://madisonaudubon.org/
Anna Pidgeon - Faculty, UW-Madison Forest & Wildlife Ecology http://forestandwildlifeecology.wisc.edu/
Stefan Knust - Director of Sustainability, Ennead Architects (NYC) http://www.ennead.com/

Learning Objectives:
- Understand the importance of birds and their human relationships, most specifically in the urban environment.
- Understand the value of birds and their environmental indicator status.
- Learn about LEED Pilot Credit 55 (pc55) and its application to projects.
- Identify strategies to deter collisions for both new architectural projects and retrofit applications.
