John James Audubon’s name is synonymous with bird conservation today. Join us to see live birds of prey presented by Houston Audubon Society as we take a trip through time, from Aristotle’s theory of transmutation to present day global threats, and discover our roots in the world of bird conservation and the impact John James Audubon had on it.
