Keith Russell is the Program Manager for Urban Conservation for Audubon Pennsylvania. Based in Philadelphia, he works on a variety of bird conservation issues including bird collisions with man-made structures, birds and nocturnal lights, non-native plants, and migration stopover habitat. His work has used eductation, monitoring, research, advocacy, and habitat restoration to improve conditions for birds in ways that have also broadened engagement in the environmental movement. In 2016 he was the recipient of the American Birding Association's Ludlow Griscom Award for Outstanding Contributions to Regional Ornithology.
