"A Wing And A Care" Live Screening with Shawn Carey

  • Wildlands Trust

Join Photographer, Videographer, and Producer Shawn Carey in the Wildlands Trust Community Conservation Barn for a live screening of his latest video, "A Wing And A Care". Snowy Owls, Atlantic Puffins, and American Kestrels each have an advocate committed to protecting it and educating others about its plight. This film opens a window into the lives of these three birds, following the stories of three men who work to protect the birds they love. "A Wing And A Care" shows how a single individual can make a world of difference in the life of a bird, and it asks a critical question: how can each one of us get involved and help build a better future for these incredible birds?

Please note that this program was originally scheduled for Thursday, February 9 and has been rescheduled due to the blizzard. 

Ticket sales will close at NOON on Thursday, February 23.

$8 members / $10 nonmembers

Tickets must be purchased in advance.

Ambassador Barber will speak about his experiences as Ambassador, conservation in Iceland, and of course, beer. This will be accompanied with tastings of Icelandic beers provided by IndieFerm. After the presentation, join us at IndieFerm's taproom on Camelot Drive for a private after party! IndieFerm was chosen by Ambassador Barber to be the house beer during his tenure as Ambassador and several styles were bottled with special labels just for the embassy. These beers will be available at the after party. Ages 21 and up.
