June 6th – 8th: Don’t miss Montana Audubon’s Wings Across the Big Sky Festival in Bozeman, Montana.
Our 2014 Bird Festival is coming to the spectacular Gallatin Valley! This year our festival is co-hosted by Montana Audubon and the Sacajawea Audubon Society, our partner in Bozeman.
The festival is sure to please as Sacajawea Audubon kicks off Friday with light hors d’oeuvres and program starting at 4:30pm. The rest of the weekend is filled with a diversity of expertly guided field trips, Saturday’s Keynote Address by Dr. John Marzluff (co-hosted by the Gallatin National Forest), Saturday’s dynamic presentations, and other activities for all.
John Marzluff will give the Keynote Address, Gifts of the Crow, a foray into what he describes as millions of years of cultural co-evolution between humans and crows. Join us as Dr. Marzluff describes humans’ ongoing connection with these mischievous, playful, social and passionate birds! If that isn’t enough to bring you over, his crow research was used in the documentary “A Murder of Crows” and his Raven research was featured in PBS’s NATURE, “Ravens”! Further, Dr. Marzluff’s research has been highlighted in the New York Times, National Geographic, Audubon, and National Wildlife. He is currently a Professor of Wildlife Science at the University of Washington, has authored over 120 scientific papers, and leads the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Recovery Team for the endangered Mariana Crow.
