Founding Feathers: Extinction and Conservation of Southern Birds

Friday, May 3, 2019, 8:30 AM - 5:00 PM

What started as a group project in a university classroom has been transformed into an educational museum exhibition on extinct and endangered birds. By showcasing the stories of the extinct ivory billed woodpecker, the Carolina parakeet, and the passenger pigeon, the exhibition brings to light the conservation efforts inspired by their disappearance. Their legacy sparked the beginning of conservation efforts around the United States including the successful conservation of the Bald Eagle. This 3rd floor lobby exhibition features objects from McKissick Museum, the Irvin Department of Rare Books and Special Collections, the Museum of York County, the South Carolina State Museum and more.
