In preparation for Joel Greenberg's lecture I posted a brief essay about the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon on the Home page of the GMAS website at:

Comments are welcome.


Hope some of you will be able to attend this talk, which should be both timely and informative.

Subject: [VTBIRD] The Life and Legacy of the Passenger Pigeon : lecture with Joel Greenberg on October 8


Hello,
The Birds of Vermont Museum and the Green Mountain Audubon Society are

The Life and Legacy of the Passenger Pigeon with *Joel Greenberg*

*Wednesday*, October 8 • 7:00 – 8:30pm

The passenger pigeon, abundant beyond current imagining, is gone. What can
we, have we, and will we learn from our relationship with this remarkable
species? Listen for "the echoes of their wings" in a presentation by author
Joel Greenberg, a naturalist and author affiliated with the Peggy Notebaert
Nature Museum at the University of Chicago.

Meet at the University of Vermont Lafayette Hall. Co-sponsored by Green
Mountain Audubon Society and the Birds of Vermont Museum. Donations welcome.


Joel will also be at the Birds of Vermont Museum on Wednesday from 11 - 2:30 if
