Join Us for a Birding Trip! The Birds We Protect Conserving Birds and the Environment for 36 Years The Birds We Protect

Celebrate Safe Flight IPA with a Nature Film Screening at KCBC

Tuesday, October 23, 7pm
With Kings County Brewers Collective
381 Troutman Street, Brooklyn, NY 11237

Join us at Kings County Brewers Collective (KCBC) during fall migration as we celebrate another season of Safe Flight IPA! KCBC's Pete Lengyel was inspired last year to create the fall seasonal brew after learning hundreds of millions of birds perish annually in the U.S due to collisions with windows. The can artwork for Safe Flight IPA, designed by Patty Woo, features facts about bird collisions with windows as well as a link to NYC Audubon's Project Safe Flight webpage to learn more about the conservation issue. Through sales of the brew last fall, KCBC donated $3,630 to support our Project Safe Flight conservation program!

Celebrate this year's delicious batch of Safe Flight IPA by joining us at KCBC for a screening of PBS's Crash: A Tale of Two Species on October 23. The screening will be followed by Q + A's with NYC Audubon ecologists and KCBC's Pete Lengyel. Safe Flight IPA will be available for purchase at the event, with portions of the sales being donated to support Project Safe Flight. Ages 21 and up.
