Got some post-holiday credit card blues? The Adopt A Stream Foundation and Snohomish County Parks are teaming up to offer you some relief. On Friday, January 18, at 7 p.m., you can attend a FREE showing of the wonderful film: “Winged Migration” at the Adopt A Stream Foundation’s Northwest Stream Center auditorium in Snohomish County’s McCollum Park (600-128th Street SE, Everett, WA 98208).
“All around the world, birds are in migration,” says Adopt A Stream Foundation Director Tom Murdoch. “Eagles have arrived along the Skagit River from the far north to eat salmon ...Trumpeter swans and snow geese can now be seen in farm fields of Washington ... and occasionally, there are some snowy owls from Canada taking in the scene.”
The film “Winged Migration” was made by five film crews following a rich variety of bird migrations through 40 countries and each of the seven continents.
The film team totaled more than 450 people. Seventeen pilots and 14 cinematographers used planes, gliders, helicopters and balloons to fly along side, above, below and in front of their subjects.
Rolling Stone raved that “Winged Migration” is “A movie miracle! It soars! You feel privileged!”
Attend this Academy Award-nominated film and you will get to “fly” along with the world’s most beautiful birds through areas as remote as the Arctic and the Amazon and as populated as Paris and New York City. Murdoch says that this film is best for middle school kids to adults — not young children. He also advises that you should bring a seat cushion to make the NW Stream Center Auditorium lecture chairs more comfortable. The film is free, however you must call (425) 316-8592 to reserve a seat. You can get driving directions to the NW Stream Center by calling that number or visiting the contact section of the Adopt A Stream Foundation’s website: www.streamkeeper.org.
