Bird Docent Orientation @ HawkWatch Headquarters
Apr 24 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
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! The films illustrate not only the challenges facing our planet but the work communities are doing to protect the environment and the places we love. The stories give us a sense of place and what it means to be responsible stewards of the earth.

Summit Land Conservancy has selected 13 environmental and adventure films ranging from 2 minutes to 27 minutes in length for this year’s festival. 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.

Arrive early to sign up to win fabulous door prizes. Tickets available online or at the door: $10 adults, $5 students. Proceeds to benefit the Summit Land Conservancy.

Rowland Hall band director and music teacher Bret Jackson is excited to host Corey Christiansen and said he “hopes jazz enthusiasts in the larger community will attend the concert.”

“Corey is a fabulous recording artist, writer, educator and performer; he has played and taught in literally every type of situation around the globe for the last decade,” Jackson said. “He is big time in the professional jazz world.”

Jackson, who holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts, is himself respected in the jazz community and has continued his professional performance career along side his passion for teaching — the combination keeps him in touch with what is going on in education and in the clubs.
