Friends Of Wissahickon To Host Scott Weidensaul Sept. 24

Friends of the Wissahickon is hosting a Valley Talk on September 24 with nationally-renowned naturalist and writer Scott Weidensaul, who will give a talk about migratory birds and the importance of preserving their habitat in the Delaware Valley.
The talk will be held at 6 p.m. at Valley Green Inn, Valley Green Road at Wissahickon in Philadelphia. Sponsored by Valley Green Bank, the event is free and open to the public. A complimentary wine and cheese reception will be offered after the event.
Weidensaul will discuss the wonder and mechanics of migrating birds and the simple, effective ways we can preserve them, from what we plant in our backyards to what we pour into our morning mug of coffee.
Weidensaul is the author of more than two dozen books on natural history, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist “Living on the Wind,” about bird migration. He is also the author of “Return to Wild America,” and “The First Frontier: The Forgotten History of Struggle, Savagery and Endurance in Early America.”
His newest book, “The Peterson Reference Guide to Owls of North America and the Caribbean,” will be published in October.  Weidensaul is a contributing editor for Audubon and writes for a variety of other publications. He lives in the mountains of eastern Pennsylvania, where he studies the migration of hawks, owls and hummingbirds.
Register for the lecture by contacting Sarah Marley by sending email to: or call 215-247-0417 x109.  Spaces are limited.
