June 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Award-winning journalist John Taliaferro, a graduate of Harvard College and former senior editor at
Newsweek, will present an educational lecture about the conservation activist George Bird Grinnell (1849
– 1938) on June 9 at 6:00 PM. Taliaferro is the author of the highly regarded publication, “Grinnell,
America’s Environmental Pioneer and His Restless Drive to Save the West.” Grinnell’s deep connection
to birds, Sheridan County and his relationship to the Northern Cheyenne People helped to preserve
much of what are now public western lands. Taliaferro is the author of several books and a winner of the
Douglas Dillon Award.
The presentation will take place in The Brinton Museum Event Pavilion and feature a cash bar. This event is free and open to the public.
Birds of the Rocky Mountain Region and the John Taliaferro lecture program are made possible by the generous support of Carol and Sam Mavrakis, The Seidler Foundation; Kay Wallick and D J Purcell; and Fort Phil Kearny/Bozeman Trail Association.
