The Great Auk and the Great Richard Wheeler

The Great Auk and the Great Richard Wheeler

Saturday, November 4th. 2:00 pm at the Methodist Meeting House, 495 Main Street

Come meet environmentalist, master kayaker, and long-time supporter of WLT, 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 & 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.

Free presentation and refreshments will be served
