Flyways Film Screening

April 26 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free
Get ready to soar into spring! In preparation for our Spring Migration Celebration, join us on Friday, April 26 at 12:00 pm for a screening of the film Flyways at the Morris Thompson Cultural & Visitors Center auditorium (101 Dunkel St, Fairbanks, Alaska). Admission is free.
The documentary shines a spotlight on an awe-inspiring phenomenon of shorebird migration. The film follows Far Eastern Curlews, Lesser Yellowlegs, Red Knots and Hudsonian Godwits as they undertake some of the longest and most grueling migrations in the animal kingdom, in which they fly for days nonstop without food or water from their feeding grounds in the southern hemisphere to the Arctic and back again. The film also sounds an alarm as dozens of shorebird species have suffered precipitous population declines in the past few decades. Researchers are trying to understand the perils the birds encounter along migration paths that were once shrouded in mystery.
