Guided Bird Walks Resume in August/September

Bird walks are open to birders of all ages and abilities.  July and August are quiet times while birds raise and fledge their young.  Check back in late August for schedules of guided bird walks. In the meantime, enjoy watching birds at home or in our protected open spaces.

with Moira McClintock, Partner of Ford 3 Architects, LLC


Moira McClintock, AIA is the guest speaker for the opening lecture on Friday, July 10 at 6:30pm

Bucks County Audubon Society (BCAS) thanks Moira McClintock, AIA, Partner at Ford 3 Architects for her excellent lecture on July 10.  .  
Moira’s passion for art, education and architecture are in her DNA.  Moira earned her Bachelor’s in Architecture
from Cornell University, New York and then studied abroad.  A registered architect in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and
New York, prior to founding Ford 3, Moira worked with Allan Greenberg, Architect in Washington, DC; Ferguson,
Shamamian and Rattner in New York and Ford Farewell Mills and Gatsch.

Moira McClintock reviewed how adaptive re-use gives older buildings a meaningful second (or third!) life.
Through case studies, Moira shared case studies and different design approaches and common challenges
encountered when rejuvenating historic structures. Moira has a lifelong commitment to the role of historic preservation in
maintaining our built environment.
