========== SPECIAL FOR AUGUST ==============

presentation  and conversation
at Brookfield Community Partnerships, Old Town Hall, Brookfield Vermont

Wednesday, August 27 • 7pm-9pm

Imagine the sights and sounds of two billion passenger pigeons flocking overhead...or the relentless onslaught of hunters gunning down pigeons for food and sport.

The journey of the passenger pigeon from abundance to destruction will be presented with an opportunity for reflection and debate on the notions of progress and de-extinction.

Part of Brookfield Community Partnership's Wild Critter Series.
