General Event Information
Event Category:

Included with museum admission; FREE for Burke members  
Dates and Times:
August 30-September 1, 10:00AM-5:00PM

September 1, 2014 marks the 100-year anniversary of the extinction of the Passenger pigeon, once the most populous bird in North America.

Join us to commemorate the anniversary. Visitors can participate in a world-wide initiative called “Fold the Flock” by making special origami Passenger pigeons. Birds folded at the museum throughout the weekend will be displayed and the final total will be registered on the Fold the Flock website. The Burke will also display its Passenger pigeon specimen, one of the 1,532 specimens left on earth and screen the “Lost Bird Project” film at 11 am each day.
