John Ruthven: The Search for the Ivory Billed Woodpecker

Sunday, October 18 ~ 4:30PM

Livingston Lodge

John Ruthven, naturalist, author, lecturer, and master of wildlife is considered the “20th Century Audubon”.  He will recount how his childhood nurtured his love of nature and tell us about his quest to find the believed-to-be-extinct Ivory-Billed Woodpecker, the largest woodpecker in the country.  His mission to spot this extraordinary bird in the Southeastern U.S. will be discussed.

Come listen to this fascinating, talented artist and entertaining speaker as he shares his tales of ornithology.

A delicious dinner and refreshments will be served after the program.
