What: Monday Night Seminar and Book Signing
When: 7:30 p.m.
Where: Cornell Lab of Ornithology, 159 Sapsucker Woods Road, Ithaca
Speaker: Dr. Stephen W. Kress, Director, Audubon Seabird Restoration Program
Description: After 42 years, Project Puffin has achieved international acclaim for pioneering methods that are helping endangered seabirds worldwide. But there is much more to this story that has never been told. Join us as project founder Dr. Stephen Kress recounts how his childhood experiences in landlocked Columbus, Ohio, ignited his lifelong passion for puffins on the Maine coast. Hear about the challenges of working on remote islands, and how persistence helped him succeed when a nemesis almost halted the project in its infancy. Join us for the first public debut of Kress’s new autographical book, which will be available for signing after the presentation.
Admission: Free
