Event Description: Al and David Eicher have created a unique Lecture and Visual presentation about a 70 year event in Michigan’s history. From the 1830’s and through the 1890’s, the Passenger Pigeon was the most beautiful bird and the dominate species in the State of Michigan. It was also the most hunted bird from April into September, depending on its roosting patterns. Professional hunters and game dealers came from New York, Texas, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Ohio to get in on the hunt. The program follows a timeline of historic events in Michigan’s History which led to the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon. This presentation was developed over several years of collecting data, newspaper articles, photos, colorful artwork, visiting museums and libraries in Michigan. This presentation is 60 minutes in length and features a wonderful story, beautiful artwork, specimens from the Cranbrook Institute of Science, plus sounds of nature as it was in the middle 1800’s. Brought to you through the generosity of the Friends of Hackley Library.
Directions:
Hackley Public Library on the corner of 3rd and Webster
