It takes a trained eye to recreate the way sunlight bounces off a deer antler or to perfectly place a thousand feathers as a tom turkey lunges forward into a thunderous gobble. For wildlife artist Ryan Kirby, the training takes place on his hunting adventures - each morning in the field used as a time to watch, listen and learn. Join Kirby, frequent cover artist for Outdoor and Field and Stream magazines, as he shares ways to experience the natural world. Registration required.
The event starts at 6 p.m. with hors d'oeuvres in the Nature Museum, followed by the lecture at 6:30 p.m. in the Nature Museum Auditorium.
