Barriers to information, health care, technology, employment, housing, recreation, education, and transportation are a daily fact of life for most individuals with disabilities. These barriers intensify during emergencies and it is important to understand the unique challenges impacting the disability community during the COVID-19 pandemic. The “Gathering Experiences of People with Disabilities During COVID-19” Survey is complete and we’d like to share our findings as we engage in conversation around the results and recent updates in the areas of the vaccine, education, employment, and access to food, shelter, and medical care. Register to attend: https://www.disabilitysa.org/april-20th-covid-19.html.

April 19 through May 7, 6-8am each morning. The main objective of the project is to monitor and document bird building collision casualties in downtown San Antonio during this peak bird migration period. The data will be used to encourage building owners and managers to turn off unnecessary lighting between 11pm and 6am during peak bird migration periods in spring and fall, thus reducing migratory bird mortality. Bird fatalities will be collected and used for scientific research; injured birds will be taken to Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation in San Antonio for treatment and possible release back into nature to continue their journey.
