Gary Langham, vice president and chief scientist for the National Audubon Society, will be the featured speaker at this year’s Jane and Whitney Harris Lecture.

“Creating an Audubon Guide to Future Bird Ranges: Implications for North American Bird Conservation,” will begin at 7:30 p.m. on March 6 in the Ridgeway Center’s Schoenberg Auditorium at the Missouri Botanical Garden, 4344 Shaw Boulevard, St. Louis. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Langham was named Audubon’s chief scientist in June 2011, after nearly five years as director of bird conservation for Audubon California where he led a team that developed a predictive geographic information system-based model that identifies specific habitat areas and species at risk from climate change.

The lecture is sponsored by the Whitney R. Harris World Ecology Center at UMSL, the Missouri Botanical Garden and the Saint Louis Zoo. Call 314-516-6123 for more information.
