JAMES BAY SHOREBIRDS
Guest speaker: Jean Iron
The extensive marshes and mudflats of Ontario’s James Bay are of international importance to breeding and migrating shorebirds.
During the summers of 2009 to 2018, Jean was a member of a crew surveying the endangered Red Knot. She will give identification tips and show what it is like doing bird research in a wilderness camp.
You may also see special birds and wildlife of James Bay.
Jean lives in Toronto.
She was president of the Ontario Field Ornithologists (OFO) from 1995 to 2004 and editor of OFO News for 14 years.
Jean received the Distinguished Ornithologist Award in 2016, and the Toronto Ornithological Club granted her Honorary Life Membership.
She represented OFO on a team with The Nature Conservancy of Canada and The Couchiching Conservancy to purchase the Cameron and Windmill Ranches, leading to the establishment of Carden Alvar Provincial Park.
A retired school principal, Jean now volunteers for Canadian Wildlife Service doing shorebird surveys on James Bay, and works as a guide for Quest Nature Tours.
