Nature is a source of noetic experiences for many of us. A recent survey suggests that bird-related hobbies have now become the most popular outdoor activity in America, surpassing fishing and hunting (and much less harmful to the critters involved). What is it about birds that make them so readily studied and enjoyed? Dr. Tucker, who is the founder of the American Birding Association, will discuss the study of birds as it relates not only to the technical and professional aspects of ornithology, but also to popular literature, media, sports, and religion. He will also speak of birds in our local area.


We hope to see you there. Like all our meetings, this one is open to visitors and is free of charge.

Where: Unitarian Universalist Church, 3224 Navajo Drive, Chattanooga
