Dorothy Crysler Bird Club

Saturday June 19, 2021

Time: 9:30am - 10:30am

Location: BMPL Zoom on-line.

Join Curator Andrea Wilson as each month we learn about our wild avian friends, their habits and habitats. This will not only help you identify birds, but you will learn about migration, nesting, environmental needs, species at risk and more. This is a collaborative study group, where participants will share as we grow knowledge together.  

The club is named for Dorothy Crysler, a remarkable local artist, journalist, author and birder! This club takes her cue, as she was "the messenger not the expert". This group is for anyone, new or established as a birder. 

Once you have register a zoom invite will be sent.

Join us on International Indigenous Peoples Day as Dr. Labelle launches her new book, Daughters of Aataentsic, Life Stories from Seven Generations.

They are: Catherine Tammaro (Wyandot of Anderdon Nation) Judith Kukowski (Wyandot of Anderdon Nation) Chief Janith English (Wyandot Nation of Kansas) Chief Judith Manthe (Wyandot Nation of Kansas) Sallie Cotter Andrews (Wyandotte Nation) Beverlee Pettit (Wyandotte Nation) Linda Sioui (Nation huronne-wendat) Manon Sioui (Nation huronne-wendat)

The Wyandot/Wendat/Wyandotte are one of the many indigenous peoples who recognize our municipality as their ancestral homeland.  The museum is pleased to welcome them back virtually today for this remarkable event.
