This a hybrid event – in-person in the auditorium as well as a free event on Zoom.

Biologist and science educator Sam Wynns is nerdy for birds. From their beautiful feathers, melodic songs, and silly dances she appreciates all things avian, but one amazing characteristic stands above all – their ability to fly. Join Sam as she explores avian adaptations for flight in this interactive, family friendly Naturally Speaking science talk. There will be props and prizes in-person; if you’re following along at home, please gather as many of these items as you can:

  • Different types of bird feathers
  • A magnifying glass
  • A large jug of water
  • Different types of animal bones

When: Friday, May 19th, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM

Where: Cabrillo National Monument auditorium and Zoom

RSVP today

Sponsored by the Cabrillo National Monument Foundation
