It was a pleasure to see so many plover fans, volunteer monitors and other supporters at the premiere this weekend at the Music Box! I am especially grateful to our moderator Paris Schutz of WTTW 11 and to fellow panelists Stephanie Beilke of Audubon Great Lakes, Brad Semel of Illinois Department of Natural Resources and Tamima Itani of Illinois Ornithological Society.
As much as completing any film feels like an end unto itself, it also means that this is when some more fun begins. That is, the fun of sharing the film with so many community organizations, schools and the general public. All along this project has been about educating others about endangered Great Lakes Piping Plovers and the many other interesting (and threatened) bird species among us.
I look forward to what's next, and if you ever have any questions at all about this project, please don't hesitate to reach out.
