Bird Docent Orientation @ HawkWatch Headquarters

Become a Bird Docent Volunteer and experience the wonder of raptors, first hand, while helping HWI expand its education mission!

Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International’s education birds. Volunteers are taught how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about birds of prey and HawkWatch International’s mission and programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do request a time commitment of volunteers and ask that they assist with some general bird care duties.

Wild & Scenic Film Festival Hosted by Summit Land Conservancy @ Jim Santy Auditorium

SYRCL’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival is a call to action!

From a story about a boy catching his first fish to a visual poem about the joy of air, from a recreation of a legendary 1906 expedition to a profile on a National Geographic Adventurer of the Year, from a hilarious, tongue-in-cheek examination of the plastic bag problem to a visually stunning exploration of a river that has not kissed the ocean in years, these 13 films will inspire, educate and challenge you and, quite possibly, change your world.

The Lunchbox  @ Jim Santy Auditorium

Directed by Ritesh Batra
Rated PG, 104 min. – subtitled

This film charmed the audiences at the most recent Toronto Film Festival. Housewife Ila tries to spice up her marriage by sending her husband special lunches. When the lunchbox is consistently delivered to the wrong person, a lonely stranger, she begins a secret correspondence with him and the two embark on what may be a lasting friendship – or a fantasy that could overwhelm them both. This darling of the festival circuit is as warm and nourishing as a home-cooked meal.

Directed by Markus Imhoof
91 min/Austria/Germany/Switzerland/2013

Oscar-nominated director Markus Imhoof (THE BOAT IS FULL) tackles the vexing issue of why bees, worldwide, are facing extinction. With the tenacity of a man out to solve a world-class mystery, he investigates this global phenomenon, from California to Switzerland, China and Australia. Exquisite macro-photography of the bees (reminiscent of MICROCOSMOS) in flight and in their hives reveals a fascinating, complex world in crisis.
