CHICAGO AUDUBON PROGRAM - THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2

CHICAGO AUDUBON SOCIETY AND THE FIELD MUSEUM PRESENT

A LECTURE AND BOOK SIGNING

BY DR. PETER MARRA, AUTHOR OF

"CAT WARS"

"The Devastating Consequences of a Cuddly Killer"

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2 AT 7:00 P.M.

The Chicago Audubon Society invites you to attend a special program presented by Dr. Peter Marra of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center on his new book, Cat Wars. In this book, Pete documents the enormous impact that free-roaming cats have on birds and small mammals. Pete's scholarly approach to the subject presents a side of the story that has been ignored in recent press reports and local initiatives to establish feral cat colonies. His book has been described as "a brave, engaging, and careful accounting of the cats we love and the devastation they inflict on birds and other wildlife."

Location:  The North Park Village Nature Center, 5801 North Pulaski Road, Building D.

Light refreshments at 7:00 p.m. The Program will begin at 7:15. Nonmembers of Chicago Audubon and the Field Museum are welcome. Bring family and friends. No formal registration is necessary--the program is free to everyone. However, if you plan to attend, please send the Chicago Audubon office an email or give us a call to let us know how many in your party so we have some idea of how many chairs to set up. Also contact us if you need directions or have questions:  [email protected]; phone 773-539-6793. We hope to see you there!

Book signing follows the program.
