Speakers:

Mary Coolidge

Audubon Birdsafe Campaign Coordinator, Portland, OR

Ms. Coolidge is Portland Audubon’s BirdSafe campaign coordinator, working with architects, planners and designers to reduce hazards for birds in the urban environment while meeting other building design and performance objectives, including site lighting design, sustainability, livability and climate change objectives. One of the driving questions in this work is around how we can light our built areas in such a way as to protect ecosystem and human health and minimize waste by reducing light pollution, while also designing nighttime environments that address safety and appeal to and accommodate people. She advocated for the use of smart technology to dim or extinguish lighting based on outdoor occupancy, motion sensors and lighting programmability. Ms. Coolidge is dedicated to improving efforts to make urban environments more hospitable to wildlife and helping to connect people to nature and place at home in the city. She has a degree in biology and formerly served as Audubon’s assistant conservation Director. She splits her time between Portland Audubon and the Oregon Zoo’s California Condor breeding program.
