Virtual Speaker Series with Jen Smith

Presented by National Aviary at National Aviary, Pittsburgh PA

Virtual Speaker Series with Jen Smith

Join the National Aviary’s Senior Aviculturist Jennifer Smith to learn how the National Aviary is leading the way for a hopeful future for these birds, and what it takes to bring back a species from the brink of extinction.
