Glenn R. Stewart of the Santa Cruz Predatory Bird Research Group will discuss falcons in a changing world, and will be accompanied by, Olga, a live falcon.  Falcons that once nested in remote cliffs are now nesting in cities on man-made structures such as buildings and bridges.  In 1970 there were only two known nesting pairs of peregrines in California; today the population has recovered to over 250 known nesting pairs, including several in the Bay Area. 

Co-sponsored by the Business Science and Technology Center and the Wallace Stegner Environmental Center.  This is a Green Stacks Program.
