Remembering North America's Extinct Birds: The Lost Bird Project

Join the Harvard Musum of Natural History for a screening of The Lost Bird Project, a film that honors five extinct North American birds: the Labrador Duck, the Great Auk, the Heath Hen, the Carolina Parakeet, and the Passenger Pigeon. Directed by Deborah Dickson, the film follows sculptor Todd McGrain as he sets out to create large bronze memorials to these lost birds and to install them in the locations where they were last seen in the wild. A discussion with McGrain and Andy Stern, the executive producer of the film, will follow the screening. A book about the project will also be available for purchase at the museum store.

Film Screening and Book Signing. Free with museum admission. Free event parking available at the 52 Oxford Street Garage
