- March 17th – 7:00pm – Walborn Eagles – Bob Berrodin and Bonnie Tewanger – Virtual Presentation – 2021 will hopefully mark the 16th year of eaglets hatching in a nest located in a tall pine tree at Walborn Reservoir. The nest is located along the shoreline off Marlboro Ave. with an observation platform within a few hundred yards away. Volunteer Eagle Watchers for Stark Parks, Bob Berrodin and Bonnie Tewanger, will share the history of the nest, the different eagles who have raised over 25 eaglets there, and the latest updates for the 2021 season.
- April 21st – 7:00pm – “Monty and Rose” – Bob Dolgan – Virtual Presentation – They’ll capture your imagination…and your heart “Monty and Rose” tells the story of a pair of endangered Piping Plovers attempting to nest on a busy beach in Chicago. The short, independent documentary chronicles these special birds and an unpredictable series of events including a proposed music festival that propelled them to national headlines. Monty and Rose became the first piping plovers to nest within the city limits of Chicago since 1955. Filmmaker Bob Dolgan began work on the film soon after the plovers arrived in Chicago in the summer of 2019. The film made its debut at the historic Music Box Theatre on November 18, 2019, a date declared Illinois Piping Plover Day by Gov. J.B. Pritzker. Chicago’s PBS station, WTTW Channel 11, broadcast “Monty and Rose” on May 2, 2020.
