NYC AUDUBON ANNUAL MEETING AND FINAL SPRING LECTURE: LISTENING TO A CONTINENT SING
By Donald Kroodsma
Monday, June 13, 6:30pm
Central Park Arsenal
Join NYC Audubon for a brief annual meeting and board election, followed by a lecture by birdsong expert Donald Kroodsma. Author of The Singing Life of Birds, Kroodsma will discuss his new book, Listening to a Continent Sing: Birdsong by Bicycle from the Atlantic to the Pacific, which narrates a ten-week, ten-state bicycle journey undertaken by the author and his son. Lingering and “listening to our continent sing” on remote country roads and over vast and spectacular terrain, from dawn to dusk and sometimes through the night, the author also comments on the history of a young nation and the geology of an ancient landscape. Light refreshments will be served.
