Join Chicago Ornithological Society and Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum for the Chicago debut of Ploverville,
In the summer of 2021, a pair of Great Lakes Piping Plovers made history. Nish, hatched and raised by Monty and Rose at Montrose Beach in 2020, landed in Toledo, Ohio and met Nellie where they became the first nesting pair of plovers in Ohio in over 80 years! Nish, Nellie, and their brood, lovingly dubbed “the four we all adore,” stole the hearts of birders and non-birders alike across the Great Lakes. Now the story of these beloved birds and the community they inspired is immortalized in a new feature film.
Join Chicago Ornithological Society and Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum for the Chicago debut of Ploverville, the documentary chronicling the fateful summer that Nish and Nellie landed in Ohio and the people who stood up to protect them.
This event will be held at the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum.
Doors open at 6:00pm, program begins at 6:30pm.
