Birdie Big Year: Elevating Women Birders
Friday, March 17, 2023
6:00pm – 8:00pm Central
Tiffany Kersten didn’t set out to do a big year, but after a series of unanticipated and serendipitous events, she suddenly found herself amidst one. As a sexual assault survivor, she spent 2021 traveling to all corners of the Lower 48 States, tallying birds and gifting personal safety alarms to women she met along the way. Her goal was to see 700 species, and to raise awareness of women’s safety in the outdoors. She ended up surpassing her goal and setting a new Lower 48 Big Year record of 726. In her presentation, Tiffany will lead us through the fear, empowerment, struggles and healing that all played vital roles in the personal growth she experienced on this wild adventure.
Join the Mitchell Lake Audubon Center, Bexar Audubon Society, and the San Antonio River Foundation in welcoming Tiffany to San Antonio and hear about her experience.
