Once described as being so numerous that they obscured the sun when in flight, the Passenger pigeon is now extinct. This year, Project Passenger Pigeon marks the centenary of this extraordinary extinction. Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary is participating in this nationwide program to bring the subject of conservation to the forefront.
At Passport to Project Passenger Pigeon on August 12 from 10 a.m. to noon, the Heard will introduce kids of all ages to conservation topics through fun games, activities, and crafts. Children will receive their own passport to the Passenger Pigeon Project. Those who complete their passport will receive a special prize. Visitors will also enjoy a special meet-and-greet with author Joel Greenberg. This event and exhibit will teach lessons from the past that you can apply toward a sustainable future!
This special event is FREE for Heard Museum members and included in general admission.
