Final Flight: The Extinction of the Passenger Pigeon marks the 100th anniversary of the death of the last passenger pigeon, a species that once filled North America’s skies by the billions. In this small exhibit at the Harvard Museum of Natural History, see one of the world’s last mounted specimens of this now vanquished bird and learn how its extinction inspired the protection of other species.
Saturday, March 8
In conjunction with the exhibit, the museum is cosponsoring the 2014 Mass Audubon Birders Meeting: Extinction is Forever: What Have We Learned? Museum members receive a discounted rate. Advance registration required. Register online.
