The Ecology of Birds in Art” Audubon Lecture is a free lecture on Florida’s wading birds, their unique environment, and the art they’ve inspired through time. Audubon Florida Ecologist Chris Farrell will give the presentation in conjunction with 7th Annual Nature & Wildlife Exhibit that is on display in the landmark gallery through August 28. According to Farrell, from Bartram and Audubon to the works in the Association’s nature exhibit, artists have captured interesting aspects of bird species for centuries.
Farrell is the Audubon Florida Policy Associate of Northeast Florida. He holds an M.S. degree in biology from Florida International University, where he studied the ecology of the Everglades.
During the lecture, attendees will have an opportunity to view the 7th Annual Nature & Wildlife exhibit, which features more than 100 original pieces by top nature artists from across the U.S. and abroad. Young visitors will enjoy finding clues for prizes in a Go Wild for Art Scavenger Hunt.
