For the Birds Program at LV Library Sept. 24

The Memorial Library of Little Valley will be hosting The Roger Tory Peterson Institute’s program based on the children’s book For the Birds, the Life of Roger Tory Peterson.  Peterson, a Jamestown historical figure, is most famous for writing and illustrating A Field Guide to Birds.

The 40 minute presentation has three components:

Items representing Peterson’s life alongside his biography help participants learn about him as he developed into a naturalist, ornithologist, artist, environmentalist and author.

Using a Peterson Field Guide, the presenter describes the Peterson System, the method of nature identification for which he is known.

Attendants practice using the Peterson System by participating in a game based on Jeopardy that challenges them to identify various birds.

The program will be held in the Library’s Community Room on Thursday, Sept. 24, at 6:30 p.m.  It is open to children and adults ages 8 and up.  Please call the library at 938-6301 to register.
