John J Audubon

On March 20 at 1:30 PM, the Museum of Nebraska Art and ESU 10 will sponsor Brian "Fox" Ellis as he portrays John J Audubon. The target audience is students in either 2nd or 3rd grade.  A limited number of schools will be able to participate via video conferencing.  To register,  click here.  

Ellis as Audubon will bring to life bird behavior, focusing on the birds you are most likely to see as you go bird watching. 

Audubon followed the annual migrations of birds throughout North America in the 1820s and 1830s, keeping meticulous journals on the birds he saw. With lessons on the scientific method, art history, and bird migration, students will be invited to imitate birds and discuss the life histories of their favorite feathered friends. 

The following video is a preview of what you might expect to see from Mr. Audubon.
