Come meet environmentalist, master kayaker, and long-time supporter of the Wareham Land Trust Richard Wheeler as we join together to view his PBS Nova special movie Haunted Cry of a Long Gone Bird. Richard paddled the migration route of the now-extinct great auk and learned how it met its demise – overfishing and overhunting. By retracing the 1,500-mile migration route of the great auk, Wheeler hoped to raise awareness of the fragile ecosystems of the North Atlantic coast. Following the short film, Richard will answer questions and discuss his journey. Refreshments will be served.
