Stop by one of our informational booths to pick up our new BIRD BOOKMARK! These amazing photographs were captured and donated by volunteer photographer Dave Brooke. Dave spends lots of time in the Allegheny County Parks, primarily Harrison Hills, which draws birders for its wide variety of species. We consulted with the Allegheny County Park Rangers to select the birds for this bookmark.
We'll be handing these out at our next booth appearance on Wednesday, March 13, at the Patagonia store in Shadyside at 5509 Walnut Street. Stop by at 6:30 p.m. to meet us and learn more about our role in improving and restoring all nine Allegheny County Parks.
At 7:30, Patagonia is hosting documentary filmmaker Greg Balkin, who will show his short film, Welcome to Gwichyaa Zhee which is free and open to the public. The film details the Gwich'in residents' fight to protect the lands of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from oil and gas development. Balkin will be available along with the film's narrator, after the film for questions and discussion. The program is free and open to the public. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
