Saturday 6:30 PM | Movie at the Marsh | Horicon Marsh International Education Center
In birding, a Big Year is seeing or hearing as many different species of birds as possible in a calendar year. Three men pursue the Birder of the Year title: Kenny Bostick, who's seen a record 732 in a past big year, Stu Preissler, newly retired, and Brad Harris, who narrates the story. Life gets in the way: Bostick's wife wants a baby, Stu's firm needs him for sensitive negotiations, and Brad, divorced and underemployed at 36, has an encouraging mom and a disapproving dad. They criss-cross the U.S. (including a trip to Alaska's westernmost island), follow migration patterns, and head for storms that force birds to ground. Who will win, at what cost, and with what rewards? Friends of Horicon Marsh International Education Center are hosting a screening of The Big Year for the community. Showing at 6:30pm in the auditorium which is on the lower level of the building. Located at N7725 Hwy 28 between Mayville and Horicon.
