Bizarre Birds of the World 2/24

Please join the Friends of the Jackson Public Library for an exciting nature program “Bizarre Birds of the World” with Steve Hale, owner of Open World Explorers, on Sunday evening February 24th at 7 pm at the Jackson Public Library.

With over 10,000 bird species in the world, there are some amazing featured creatures that stretch our understanding of what it means to be a bird. This entertaining and educational program features extreme examples of birds and bird biology. Some of the special birds included in this program are the Hoatzin, Kakapo, Oilbird, Standard Wing Nightjar, and more.

Steve Hale holds university degrees in marine biology, evolutionary biology, and ecology. He has lived in New Hampshire for over 20 years and has explored most of the state. An avid hiker, birder, and experienced naturalist, Steve founded Open World Explorers in 2016 to more fully share his experience and knowledge in ecology, ornithology, and earth science with others.

This lecture is free and open to the public, although a $5.00 donation is welcome to offset presenter expenses.

Book group and the weather

The Conway Library has already announced they are closing at 5pm; SAU9 has canceled after-school activities; and the weather forecast says it is going to get bad fast. I’m not willing to say we’ll close early just yet, but we were scheduled to have our discussion of When Books Went To War by Molly Guptill Manning this afternoon. I would like to reschedule that discussion to NEXT WEEK: Tuesday February 19th at 4:30pm.
