The Sogkonate Garden Club will present a program by well-known  known ornithologist, professor, and author, Dr. Charles Clarkson on Wednesday June 1, 2022, at the Little Compton Community Center at 7:30 PM. In 2015, Charles was employed as the coordinator for the Rhode Island Bird Atlas, a five-year, statewide project aimed at documenting the distribution and abundance of the state’s birds. Dr. Clarkson received his doctorate from the University of Virginia, where his primary focus was on the impact of mercury on the growth and development of nesting waterbirds. He moved to Rhode Island in 2011 and has taught at Salve Regina and Roger Williams Universities.   Charles serves as a board member for the Audubon Society of Rhode Island and ALT, and as the co-chair of the Conservation Committee for the International Waterbird Society.

Dr. Clarkson is a favorite speaker, and has presented talks before for the SGC Club. He will discuss The Rhode Island Bird Atlas and its survey of year-round use of habitats by birds and how they are likely to be altered through climate change.

The program is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! MASKS are optional at the LCCC.
