Program Reminder - 12 FEB 2014

Tonight (12 FEB 2014) the Chippewa Valley Audubon Club will be holding its regular monthly meeting at 7:30PM at the Veterans Memorial Library in Mt Pleasant.

Our speaker this month is Professor Daniel Patterson of Central Michigan University.   Dr. Patterson will be discussing journals from John James Audubon's 1943 journey in the American West.  From the CVAC website:

      "The discovery of three original journals from Audubon’s 1843 expedition to the confluence of
        the Yellowstone and Missouri Rivers leads us to a new and more accurate understanding of 
        what the namesake of the Audubon Society actually thought about how humans should relate
        to wildlife.  Throughout his career, his gunning ethic was a messy work in progress, but by the
        time he was done (1851), he was one of the first to advocate for the ethical consideration of
        birds and human restraint in the environment.  Daniel Patterson discusses."

This event is free and open to the public.
