Wings Over Water: A Film Screening and Panel Discussion at Theatre Horizon
Wednesday, October 04, 2023
7:00pm – 8:30pm Eastern
Audubon Mid-Atlantic, the John James Audubon Center at Mill Grove, and Theatre Horizon are pleased to bring you “Wings Over Water,” a visually stunning film that shares the epic journey of three migratory birds and their connection to wetlands, and other crucial waterways as they traverse thousands of miles to reach their nesting and breeding grounds.
Though concentrated in the Central and Mississippi Flyways, two of the film’s featured birds, Yellow Warblers and Mallard Ducks, also migrate through parts of the Atlantic Flyway, including the Delaware River Watershed where Audubon Mid-Atlantic is working to conserve, restore, and create quality habitat for these and many other bird species.
Following the screening, a panel of experts will discuss the annual phenomenon of migration and the inherent role of birds as indicators of environmental health. Panelists will also speak to the importance of water quality, riparian habitat, and pollinators in maintaining healthy landscapes within the Delaware River Watershed, and how Audubon Mid-Atlantic is making a difference for birds and people.
