Join us for Martha's Wake
At 1:00 pm on September 1, 1914, Martha, the last living passenger pigeon, died at the Cincinnati Zoo. To celebrate the life of Martha (and passenger pigeons in general), A wake has organized Mon-day, September 1, 2014, at the Lost Province Brewing Company, 130 N. Depot Street in Boone.
Wear black (optional!) and come around noon for a Dutch treat lunch – and you’ll even get to learn more about passenger pigeons from our own Curtis Smalling of Audubon North Carolina!
Angie Langevin, a graduate student at Appalachian State University, was recently selected to receive HCAS’s 2014 Sue Wells Research Grant.
