The Lost Bird Project is a film about public art, extinction, and memory.

Gone and nearly forgotten in extinction, the Labrador Duck, the Great Auk, the Heath Hen, the Carolina Parakeet, and the Passenger Pigeon leave holes not just in the North American landscape but in our collective memories. Moved by their stories, sculptor Todd McGrain set out to create memorials to the lost birds—to bring their vanished forms back into the world.  The Lost Bird Project follows the road-trip that McGrain and his brother-in-law, Andy Stern, take as they search for the locations where the birds were last seen in the wild and negotiate for permission to install McGrain’s large bronze sculptures there.

At the screening, a guest speaker/local expert will be present to lead a discussion on what we can do to help.

This film presentation is made possible through a partnership with Radnor Conservancy, Radnor Bird Town, and Radnor Township’s Environmental Advisory Committee(EAC).

The screening is free and registration is not required.

See you at the Library,

Pam
