Kathy and Jim Bricker, adventurers, will present a program about birds of Canada on April 22. “Yellowknife Spring: Birds of the Far North” is a short film gathered from various canoe trips and five weeks in Yellowknife that focuses 90% on birds, with some geology. There are amazing close-up shots of bird behavior.

Yellowknife, the capital and largest city of the Northwest Territories, is set in a rolling and rocky landscape, dotted with many small lakes, approximately 250 miles south of the Arctic Circle.  Located on the northern shore of Great Slave Lake and the west side of Yellowknife Bay, it is home to a few bird species year round, including ravens and Snowy Owls, and provides nesting areas for geese, ducks, and swans.

The Brickers are from the Straits area and headed the Straits Area Audubon Society in 2010.  Join us for the last ASK program of the 2012-2013 year to hear them speak about their adventures in our neighbor to the north.

The program will be held at People’s Church, 1758 North 10th Street, Kalamazoo, on Monday, April 22. The program starts at 7:30 PM and is preceded by a social time with light refreshments at 7:00. Guests and the general public are encouraged to attend. Handicap parking and access is at the  front or rear of the building. Please bring your own coffee cup to save our refreshment committee from dishpan hands.
