Western Cuyahoga Audubon Society, Kirtland Bird Club, and Audubon Society of Greater Cleveland present the following special event:

One hundred years ago this September, Martha, the last Passenger Pigeon, fell dead in her cage at the Cincinnati Zoo. With her death, the Passenger Pigeon, once the most numerous bird species in the world, became extinct. The program will include a viewing of the film, the "Lost Bird Project," showcasing the work of artist Todd McGrain and his effort to create memorials for five extinct species close to the area where the last of their kind lived. Following the program, we will convene a panel of local experts who will speak about their efforts to improve the future for wild things and wild places both regionally and across the planet. We envision a lively conversation with panelists and the audience about successful strategies for preserving habitats and species as well how participants can become involved.

Free Program, Free Parking and Free Refreshments!
