Every year, millions of migrating birds make incredible pilgrimages.
This quest often requires them to cover unfathomable distances and overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. But migrating birds are tough. They are survivors. This story is proof.
The Nature Conservancy is excited to invite our most loyal supporters to a special evening to hear a remarkable journey that would make a small Eastern shorebird one of the most famous survivors in the world.
Phil Hoose is hitting the road to talk about his new book, Moonbird: A Year on the Wind with B95, an epic saga that chronicles the miraculous survival of a four-ounce shorebird in the face of seemingly overwhelming adversity, migration and constant change. Phil uses the narrative to brighten the spotlight on migrating birds and extinction. His storytelling style has garnered the National Book Award and a Newbery Honor among many other awards. His image-saturated presentations are lively, fun and informative – and even musical. Join us for a high-energy, thought-provoking evening with this amazing Conservancy veteran at the Chapter’s Concord Field Office.
Copies of Moonbird will be available for purchase at the event. Phil will be happy to sign yours!
