Birmingham Audubon is proud to present renowned anthropologist Shepard Krech III, Professor Emeritus at Brown University and the author of The Ecological Indian: Myth and History, for a special public talk on the University of Alabama campus in Tuscaloosa, Tuesday, November 27th, from 6–8 p.m., in Room 205 of the Amelia Gayle Gorgas Library.

Join us as Dr. Krech explores the intersections of Native American culture and southeastern bird life in a talk based on his book, Spirits of the Air: Birds and American Indians in the South.

Free parking will be available on campus after 5:00 p.m. at the following locations: the road behind the library (accessed from Hackberry Lane), the Ferguson Center lot, and the ten Hoor lot. Here is a map of the campus with parking in green. The easiest thing is probably to park at the Transit Hub parking deck (D480 on map). The library is 1013 on the map off Capstone Drive.

This free talk is made possible through a partnership between Birmingham Audubon and the University of Alabama Department of American Studies, with sponsorship support from the Department of Anthropology, the Department of Art and Art History, New College, the Summersell Center for the Study of the South, and the College of Arts and Sciences, as well as through a generous grant from the Daniel Foundation of Alabama.
