One hundred years ago the passenger pigeon, once the most abundant bird in North America, vanished forever from our skies when the last one died in a zoo in Cincinnati, Ohio. Join Kyle Bagnall of the Chippewa Nature Center as he shares records from early explorers, missionaries and traders to tell this tragic story. Bagnall’s multimedia presentation features historic lithographs, paintings and photographs and is a great complement to the Harbor Springs History Museum's temporary exhibit, "A Shadow Over the Earth: The Life and Death of the Passenger Pigeon," on display through May 2015. Admission to this Harbor History Talk is $5 per person. Reservations are strongly encouraged as our summer Harbor History Talks often sell out. Reservations can be made by calling the Historical Society at (231) 526-9771. The talk begins at 5:30 pm in the second floor Anton Library of the Harbor Springs History Museum at 349 E. Main Street, Harbor Springs, Michigan.
