AU Salon: Birders: The Central Park Effect

Wednesday, April 28, 2021

What is the AU Salon? It is a virtual (for now) space where we will meet, share ideas, discuss, connect. Every last Wednesday of the month one of our guides will lead a discussion about a film, book, podcast, or anything and everything outdoor-related. All the Salon events are completely free. We hope you can join us for a chat! And come on over to our Facebook Community to share thoughts, ask questions, or connect with others at any time.

“It is a relatively short but luxurious film about birds and the people who watch them, and the way that nature finds a place in the city, and in its citizens.”
–Robert Loyd, Los Angeles Times

“Birders vividly captures the distinctive colors and markings of a vast number of bird species and the equally individualized personalities of those watching them within the confines of Central Park.”
–Ronnie Schelb, Variety
