ANNUAL MOVIE AND POPCORN NIGHT
7:00 PM
Lenoir Nature Preserve
Film: THE LOST BIRD PROJECT
The Labrador Duck, Heath Hen, Carolina Parakeet, and Passenger Pigeon are all extinct and have left a hole in the American landscape and in our collective memory. Moved by their stories, sculptor Todd McGrain set out to bring their vanished forms back into the world by permanently placing his elegant, evocative bronze memorials at the location of each bird's demise. This film tells the story of how these birds came to meet their fate and the journey that led McGrain to their final habitats.
