Workshop is at Chico Masonic Family Center (Map)


The majestic Bald Eagle was adopted in 1782 as America’s official bird. It has historically been a symbol of freedom and patriotism in the United States of America, and for good reason. The bird is associated with authority and has a fierce beauty that speaks to those who look upon it. Once on the brink of extinction, it is currently enjoying a comeback. Today, the Bald Eagle is a protected species.

As chronicled in his newest book, Bald Eagles in the Wild - A Visual Essay of America’s National Bird, wildlife and bird photonaturalist Jeffrey Rich will present this story with his glorious storytelling photography. He will share insights into the birds’ habitat, feeding habits, mating patterns, the care of their young, and more. You will marvel over images of birds in flight, in nests with their young, at rest, preening, and capturing prey. Rich has chronicled the daily lives, in detail, of America’s favorite bird. Jeffrey will share the story of many people who have helped and been inspired by nature and eagles.

This presentation is definitely for the wildlife-lover, presents good news, and represents a feel-good state of things. You should leave knowing what is right with the world.
