The Northwest Illinois Audubon Society, the Freeport Art Museum, and the Boys and Girls Club of Stephenson County are pleased to present a Zoom event featuring Christian Cooper.

Christian Cooper has graciously accepted an invitation to visit Freeport and share his enthusiasm for birding with the young people at the Boys and Girls Club and the community. During his visit, there will be a donation of binoculars to the Club to begin a birdwatching group.
Besides his lifelong excitement for birding, Christian has been a dedicated advocate for equality and inclusivity. On the evening of June 16th, he will speak from his experience in promoting social justice and anti-racism as part of that critical conversation concerning equity and inclusion throughout the United States.

We hope very much to see you there.
