In conjunction with the Arsenal Gallery exhbiition "Conserving Our City of Nature:The Artwork of Alan Messer", NYC Audubon will host a lecture about their educational and conservation initiatives. NYC Audubon has worked for over 30 years to protect wild birds and their habitat in the five boroughs, through public outreach and advocacy, educational programming, and scientific research.

Many New Yorkers are unaware of the 350 species of wild birds—almost a third of all bird species in North America—that live in or pass through New York City each year. Artist Alan Messer skillfully captures many, from exquisite migrating Blackburnian Warblers in Central Park’s ramble to a Northern Harrier scanning the vast marshes of Jamaica Bay.

"Conserving Our City of Nature: The Artwork of Alan Messer" presented by NYC Audubon reveals over 30 of Messer’s detailed paintings, illustrations, and field sketches of New York City's avian wildlife and habitats, offering a view of NYC Audubon's conservation mission through an artistic eye.
