A Wing and a Prayer
is the story of a band of scientists, birders, hunters and ranchers working to save birds set against the loss of a third of North America’s bird populations in the past 50 years. Avid birders by avocation and veteran journalists by vocation, Anders and Beverly Gyllenhaal traveled over 25,000 miles in a refashioned Airstream, finding inspiring and encouraging rescue missions all across the hemisphere, but they also discovered how much more can and must be done to halt the dramatic declines. In this impassioned talk, they walk us through the steps any one of us can take to contribute to saving our imperiled bird populations.

Copies of A Wing and a Prayer will be available for purchase that evening through Malaprop’s Bookstore for the authors to sign. Participants can stay after to enjoy ArborEvenings in the garden!
