Meet renowned ornithologist and conservationist Dr. George Archibald Tuesday, July 25, at Cantigny Park, Wheaton, IL
Calling All Craniacs!
Dr. George Archibald, co-founder of the International Crane Foundation, will be giving a presentation at Cantigny Park on Tuesday, July 25, from 7:30 to 9 p.m., entitled My Life with Cranes.
As an International Crane Foundation member, you are invited to attend the DuPage Birding Club's free evening presentation at the Cantigny Park Visitors Center, with parking available for $5.
Dr. Archibald is a legendary conservation ambassador who uses his unique brand of crane diplomacy to preserve the landscapes necessary for the survival of both cranes and people around the world. He lives, breathes and dances with cranes! George's visionary leadership in international conservation efforts over the past 45 years has given flight to grass-roots conservation worldwide. Today, the International Crane Foundation has over 90 staff and supports conservation projects in 45 countries.
Dr. Archibald's new book, My Life with Cranes, will be available for sale after the presentation, or you may order a copy here. The new memoir includes the charming account of George's famous pair-bond with a very rare whooping crane named Tex.
