The Countryside Conservancy and the South Branch Tunkhannock Creek Watershed Coalition will be presenting “Birds as indicators of surface water contaminants in the Marcellus Shale region of Pennsylvania” by Dr. Jeffrey Stratford on Monday, June 4th, at 6:30 pm at the Environmental Learning Center in Lackawanna State Park.
Dr. Jeffrey Stratford is a biologist at Wilkes University trained in tropical ornithology, forest fragmentation, and urban ecology. Dr. Stratford’s research for the last two years has taken him throughout the northeastern quadrant of Pennsylvania, focusing on whether or not any contaminants from hydrofracking have made their way into terrestrial birds.
