Creative Responses to Barn Swallow Decline: An Arts & Science Virtual Panel

Barn swallows are a parallel species to humans—they often increase in numbers as people do. Yet in the last 40 years the species has seen a 76% decline in Canada. From the Bible to Pliny to Shakespeare, swallows have been associated with the oncoming of spring, freedom, and the love of and fidelity to home. Join us as we host artists, scientists and others who have been inspired by the barn swallow for a discussion on this species’ decline and how community science, artistic methods, and critical design complement conservation efforts.
