EARTH FRIENDLY FRIDAY
Featured Event —
WHAT MAKES CAPE MAY AND CAPE CHARLES SPECIAL
Feb. 17, 2017 (third Friday this month) - Social time, 6:30 (snacks welcome) Program, 7:00
Ed Kyle’s awe-inspiring photos, natural history depth and rich stories will transport us to places where wildlife abounds. The primary focus is bird migration of the Eastern or Atlantic flyway, but the presentation will include wildlife in various national and state/provincial parks of North America. Ed reminds us: “…it’s common to be looking for one thing and find another.”
Ed is a retired clinical psychologist, originally from Lynchburg, and an alumnus of Virginia Tech and Virginia Commonwealth University. A former member of the Sierra Club’s Roanoke Group Executive Committee, Ed remains a solid supporter of local, national, and worldwide efforts to maintain quality of life on Earth. His parents’ backyard bird feeder and far-reaching curiosities sparked his early interest in birds and plants and he still recalls his father pointing out the difference between a chickadee and a nuthatch. Ed, Barbara and family are avid hikers and like to know something about what they’re seeing along the way. Next month they’ll be watching sandhill cranes on the Platte River in Nebraska.
