The Messenger

Feb 25, 2020 6pm Woodstock Town Hall Theater [ Google Maps]

For thousands of years, humankind regarded songbirds as messengers from gods. Under threat from climate change, pesticides and more, populations of hundreds of species have dipped dramatically. As scientists, activists and bird enthusiasts investigate this phenomenon, amazing secrets of the bird world come to light for the first time.

Stay around after the film for a panel discussion with the VT Audubon society, and learn about ways that you canhelp protect songbirds.
