Thanks to members Terry and Joanne Gorges and volunteer Megan Taylor for staffing the Western Cuyahoga Audubon display, connecting with exhibiting organizations, and getting the word out about Chapter programs to film audiences!
The documentary, The Messenger, shown at The Cleveland Museum of Natural History on Wednesday, September 28, 2016 attracted a nice crowd who not only viewed the film, but had the opportunity to speak with representatives from 22 organizations who shared information on taking action to protect migratory songbirds.
