Speakers: Darryl McGrath, journalist & author
Forty years ago, four women biologists in New York played key roles in the projects that kept the Peregrine Falcon and Bald Eagle from going extinct. All four became the first scientists ever to achieve several critical accomplishments in this work. Their research often unfolded in the wilderness, under difficult, isolated, and even dangerous conditions. Author Darryl McGrath captures their stories in her book, “Flight Paths: A Field Journal of Hope, Heartbreak, and Miracles with New York’s Bird People,” which documents the raptor recovery programs and also pays tribute to the determination of these early women biologists.
