SF Bay Area’s Premier Wildlife Rehabilitation and Nature Education Center Presents a Traveling Exhibit from Award-Winning Photographer Paul Bannick
WALNUT CREEK, CALIF.– Sept. 27, 2016– Lindsay Wildlife Experience announces OWL: A Year in the Life of North American Owls will debut at Lindsay Nov. 4! In his newest book, award-winning photographer, conservationist and author Paul Bannick uses his intimate yet dramatic images to track four different nesting owl species—Northern Pygmy, Burrowing, Great Gray, and Snowy—throughout the course of one year and in four distinct habitats. Bannick will launch this book at Lindsay in celebration of his first-ever exhibit at the 61-year-old nature and education center, starting Oct 5.
What: In his world-traveling art exhibit The Owl and the Woodpecker, Paul Bannick introduces Lindsay visitors to the most important species of owls and woodpeckers in North America. The exhibit on loan from Seattle’s Burke Museum consists of 25 large breathtaking prints. This up-close and personal photography illustrates how these birds define and enrich their habitats and makes a case for conservation. The Owl and the Woodpecker is based on a book of the same title. Bannick’s work has appeared in Audubon magazine, the National Wildlife Federation Guide to North American Birds and the Smithsonian Guide to North American Birds.
As part of the exhibit and book launch, Bannick himself will be at Lindsay hosting photography workshops, tours and a lecture, all on Nov. 4 and 5. The day will culminate with an official launch of his new book, complete with a never-before seen presentation at 7 p.m. For dates, times and costs of workshops, tours, and lecture go to lindsaywildlife.org and click on “Special Events.”
