    Ray Stocking has new revelations to share in this fascinating program on one of the first great showdowns in America – the confrontation between the need to fulfill the demand for fashion, land, and timber, and the desire to save the “Lord God” bird, the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker. It has been almost 18 years since the “rediscovery” of this stunning bird, and the expert backlash that immediately followed that announcement. With Ray’s guidance, we will have an opportunity to review what has happened since, and what lies ahead. Join us for this important chapter in the continuing saga of commerce versus conservation in America. 

    Ray Stocking is a former president of the Washtenaw Audubon Society, a former member of the Michigan Audubon Board of Directors, and a passionate bird watcher. Ray lives in Ann Arbor and birds there…as well as everywhere else.
