Join us on May 2 for a special preview reception for the opening of our latest special exhibition: Florida Feathers: Birds in Peril, which highlights the plight many of Florida’s native bird species face through the breathtaking images captured by Photographer Grant Jefferies.
Jefferies, who grew up in Palmetto and enjoyed a successful career at the Bradenton Herald, is dedicating his time in retirement to heightening our appreciation for nature. Florida Feathers: Birds in Peril focuses on some of the most precious jewels that our paradise has to offer: passionately pink roseatte spoonbills, fierce ospreys and eagles, majestic herons and skittering shorebirds. As these Florida favorites struggle to survive loss of habitat and find themselves listed as threatened and endangered species, Jefferies brings them to life through the beauty of his images.
Cost: Free for eligible members of the Discovery Society; $5 for all others.
