About

Highly entertaining nature documentaries by some of the world’s best film makers. Saving nature can be fun as well as serious.

  • APRIL 4: Ghost Bird by Scott Crocker. 6pm. This documentary follows the search for the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker, long believed to be extinct, while revealing the hilarious lengths to which people will go to refute or deny that belief. Award-winning filmmaker Crocker will be on hand to introduce the film and answer questions afterwards.
  • APRIL 5: Cane Toads: An Unnatural History. 5:30pm. This film by Mark Lewis is a study of the cane toad, introduced into Australia in 1935 to control a beetle infestation that was destroying the country's sugar cane fields. The cane toad ate the beetles -- and everything else.
