    Pest Bird Management and the Role of Contraception Webinar
    Presented by: Erick Wolf, BS, MBA, Innolytics LLC
    Nuisance birds are often a facilities management challenge and many campuses struggle with these aerial pests. Due to the risk of collateral damage, commonly accepted, lethal control techniques for rodents and insects are not appropriate for birds. Killing birds, even lowly pigeons, can result in unprecedented public outrage by students, faculty and staff. The AFC webinar describes the most common bird pests, their biology, behavior and relevant mitigation techniques. Contraception of pest birds is a new tool that has been recently added to the portfolio of management alternatives. In addition to conventional exclusion and removal techniques, the new technology provides a safe and effective population management tool. This presentation introduces participants to the basics of bird management strategies and the principles of integrated pest management for birds (“IPM”).

    Phantom Load: Become a Carbon Zero Hero Webinar
    Case Studies
    Questions and Answers
    Resource List
    Presented by: Elliot Easton, Project Director for Sustainability at EYP/Energy and Katherine Johnson, President of Johnson Consulting Group
    Are you aware of the constant drain of energy resulting from poorly managed phantom-loads on your campus? Computers, televisions, printers, and other high-energy demand plug-in electronics can quickly short-circuit the typical college dorm. While colleges and universities are striving to manage rising energy costs and become more sustainable, energy demands from the increased use of plug-in electronic devices are a constant drain on an institution’s bottom line. So how can you reduce the negative effects of phantom-loads? This webinar summarizes power-management strategies for reducing phantom-loads based on comprehensive on-site audits of more than 15 college campuses. It also uses audit data to analyze specific plug-load usage by key college constituents and programs, such as staff, faculty, dormitories, and computer labs and libraries. The presentation also features examples of student-led energy conservation campaigns, including the University at Buffalo’s creative and successful "Do It In the Dark" campaign.

    Building Green with Metal Webinar
    Presented by: Scott Kriner
    This informative presentation takes a look at energy usage in the U. S. and how the use of metal roofs and walls can help reduce energy consumption in buildings. The session begins with an explanation of the concept of "cool metal roofing" and how it can help lower air conditioning loads. Compliance with new energy codes and the findings of independent research studies are then discussed, along with a case study comparing two identical buildings, except that one has a "standard" roof, the other, a "cool" roof. The presentation continues with a look at the role of "cool metal walls" and insulated metal panels in reducing energy consumption, and then concludes with a discussion of the environmental benefits of metal roofs and walls, including their contribution to LEED points.
