A Birding Double Feature

Sun. April 23

Join hundreds of fellow birders, wildlife enthusiasts, nature lovers and environmentalists for a special two-film birding event also featuring the Sierra Club, the Stanislaus Audubon Society, the Great Valley Museum and the Stanislaus Wildlife Refuge.  You’ll also find out where the top spots are for locating a plentitude of birds and wildlife, all in your own backyard.

My Big Year (G) 50 Min.
Educator, photographer and birder Jim Gain, inspired by the movie The Big Year, decided to see how many different bird species he could photograph over four seasons in 2016.  His breathtaking film, shot in Merced and Stanislaus counties, beautifully captures thousands of wild birds and their habitats.
