The Last Flight of the Scarlet Macaw by Bruce Barcott, May 12, 6:30 pm in the Naturalist Center
What can one individual do to save a threatened population? When zookeeper Sharon Matola learned that a dam would be built that would flood the nesting ground of the only scarlet macaws in Belize, she took up the cause. Barcott’s account of her battle ranges from boardroom to courtroom and from the local village to protests around the world. Join other adults for a discussion of one woman’s quest and the lessons it may offer to environmentalists everywhere.
