Books, Beers, and Belted Kingfishers!
October 29 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Halcyon Journey is the first book to feature North America’s beloved bird of waterways. Its author, Marina Richie, is a biologist and nature writer from Bend, OR. Her kingfisher explorations and research spanned more than a decade. At this event, she will showcase her recently published book, which is illuminated with sixteen illustrations by Oregon artist Ram Papish, a popular repeat presenter at LCAS Program Meetings.
Marina will be hosted by local writer Tom Titus, who will also read selections from Palindrome, his own collection of essays and poems that celebrate natural wonders of Pacific Northwest, the bloodshot stare of a Sharp-shinned Hawk, and other topics. Tom is a retired research biologist and free-range philosopher who says he enjoys writing “at the messy interface of human experience and the natural world.”
Our monthly program meetings have something for everyone. During the last year we hosted programs by naturalists, wildlife artists and expert birders on a variety of topics from the birds of Hawaii, to ravens, wolves, and people, to the migration of red knots. Participating in a program meeting is a fun way to get involved with Lane County Audubon. Meetings are free and open to all.
We are currently meeting on Zoom and in-person as conditions allow on the 4th Tuesday of each month between September and May at 7:00 p.m.
