May Monthly Meeting 5/17 Owling at the Moon: Explorations on Silent Wings with Zoe Yost

Posted · Add Comment

Owls, the silent wings of the night, have fascinated humankind for centuries, both in positive and negative ways. But, what becomes visible to the mind’s eye when this cloak of myth and speculation is thrown off? Chronicling both fact and fiction, enthusiastic owlaholic  Zoe Yost takes her audience on a rollicking expedition through original photographs, artwork, and writing to shed light on these elusive owls, one of the dark’s most iconic inhabitants.
Zoe Yost is a fourteen-year- old naturalist, writer, artist, musician, and yogini. An active birder since age six, she has presented at and co-led birding walks with the Delmarva Ornithological Society, raised over $5,000 for the Delaware Bird-A-Thon, and worked as a banding assistant for Dr. Ian Stewart.
