Annual Meeting & Film: The Messenger
June 20 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PMFree
2018 Annual Meeting and Election of Board of Directors will take place before the film.
Su Rynard’s documentary The Messenger explores our deep-seated connection to birds and warns that the uncertain fate of songbirds might mirror our own. Moving from the northern reaches of the Boreal Forest to the base of Mount Ararat in Turkey to the streets of New York, The Messenger brings us face to face with a remarkable variety of human-made perils that have devastated thrushes, warblers, orioles, tanagers, grosbeaks, and many other airborne music-makers.
The Messenger is the story of the mass depletion of songbirds on multiple continents and of those who are working to turn the tide. In ancient times, humans looked to the flight and songs of birds to protect the future. Today once again, birds have something to tell us.
