First Tuesday Lectures
Tuesday, August 2nd, “The Messenger” A film about our connection to birds
7:00 – 8:30pm at the Merc Playhouse, Twisp.
Can you imagine a world without birdsong?
In ancient times humans looked to the flights and songs of birds to foretell the future. Today, birds still have something to tell us. The visually stunning and highly-acclaimed documentary “The Messenger” explores our deep connection to birds and warns that the fate of songbirds might mirror our own. From the northern reaches of the boreal forest to countries around the globe to the streets of New York, this film brings us into the lives of thrushes, warblers, orioles, tanagers, grosbeaks and many other songbirds and shows us what birds are saying about the state of our planet and our shared future.
The program is free and open to everyone. Doors open at 6:30pm. Light refreshments available. Air-conditioned! For more information, contact us at 996-2870 or email@example.com
