Featured Speaker: Joel Greenberg,
Research Associate of both the Chicago Academy of Sciences Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum and the Field Museum; author of A Natural History of the Chicago Region and A Feathered River Across the Sky: The Passenger Pigeon's Flight to Extinction.

This presentation looks at three birds, each representing a different outcome at the hands of people. With a population in the billions, the passenger pigeon was the most abundant bird in North America. Yet within a matter of decades, unrelenting human exploitation drove it to extinction. The Kirtland's warbler has since historical times bred in a very limited range and within narrow habitat parameters. The whooping crane declined to 23 living individuals twice. Learn more about these species and what can be done to save them at this exciting lecture. For more information, visit our website:
