The Big Walnut Nature Club invites you to its free Cabin Fever Movie Night at 7 p.m., March 18, at the Galena Village Hall, 109 Harrison St., in Galena.
If you are itching for spring, this will give you a jump start on wildlife watching. Local wildlife videographers Tom and Rosemary Domin will share their footage of Red Headed Woodpeckers, Prothonotary Warblers, Kingfishers, Osprey, and Beaver. All of these species are prevalent in the Hoover Nature Preserve around Galena.
Approaching retirement, the Domins started their wildlife videography hobby in 2005 when a Great Horned owl nested near St. Ann’s hospital. Trial and error with equipment and technique over the next five years finally yielded satisfactory results. Now, they have 35 subjects available for presentation and many hours of archived video. They are continuing to search for subjects and leads, preferably of nesting birds because they hold still.
The Big Walnut Nature Club focuses on conservation and education. If you are interested in joining their efforts, contact [email protected] or visit www.bwnatureclub.webs.com.
