It's hard to imagine any piece of federal legislation more complex -- or more wonky -- than the Farm Bill. But as this great Audubon story suggests, there's a lot in the Farm Bill for birds. Here in California, Farm Bill helps provide habitat for birds on Central Valley farms and protect rare Tricolored Blackbirds, but that's just the beginning.
This week, the Sacramento Bee published an excellent piece on how grebe populations in northern California might be impacted by climate change. The article also highlighted the grebe monitoring and outreach work of three of our chapters, Altacal, Plumas, and Redbud. For more information about our long running grebe project, please see our latest update.
