Burke Museum
Sun., Nov. 9, 2014 | 1 pm
Included with museum admission; FREE for Burke members

Join us for a film screening and meet the director of The Lost Bird Project, a film that honors five extinct North American birds: the Labrador Duck, the Great Auk, the Heath Hen, the Carolina Parakeet, and the Passenger Pigeon. The film follows sculptor Todd McGrain on his journey to install the large bronze memorials he creates in the locations where the birds were last seen in the wild. A discussion with Deborah Dickson, the director of the film, will follow the screening. Signed copies of the recently released book, The Lost Bird Project, will be available for purchase in the museum store. Attendees are also invited to "Fold the Flock" and create origami Passenger Pigeons to take home.
