Laurie Goodrich

   Biography

Laurie J. Goodrich, Senior Monitoring Biologist, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary, Kempton, PA. Her work includes supervising Hawk Mountain’s raptor migration counts and database management, acting as liaison with North American raptor migration sites, and the Veracruz (Mexico) River of Raptors program, research on raptor migration behavior and ecology, and research on the effects of forest fragmentation on nesting birds. Laurie received her Ph.D. in Ecology in 2010 on the stopover behavior and ecology of autumn-migrating raptors and a M.S. in Ecology from Rutgers University in 1982 on Least Terns. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Raptor Research Foundation, the board of the Hawk Migration Association of North America, and the Pennsylvania Ornithological Technical Committee, and the Berks Conservancy natural resource committee.
