Performance Notes

Wednesday, April 1, 2020, 7:00 pm Tickets: $10 in advance, $15 at the door | $5 for youth Paul Bannick - Arctic Messenger: What the Snowy Owl Tells Us Paul Bannick is an extraordinary photographer who not only captures gorgeous images of birds in their daily lives, but also makes a compelling case for preserving the habitat that sustains them. He is especially drawn to owls, particularly snowy owls, which is the subject of his talk. “For many of us, they embody the essence of wilderness,” he says. “They are also important messengers in that they tell us by their presence or absence about the health of vast ecosystems in the Arctic that are experiencing the pressure of climate change.” The photographer and author of two best-selling books, Owl, A Year in the Lives of North American Owls, and The Owl and the Woodpecker, Bannick is a frequent keynote speaker at Audubon events, bird festivals, and conservation events across North America.
