Join Chief Curator Jose Diaz and avian conservation biologist Nick G. Liadis for an outdoor field trip to Fenelton, Pennsylvania. Experience extraordinary bird observations and a visit to the Twin Stupas, an earthwork by artist Angelo Ciotti. The land—owned by the Ciotti family—hosts a diversity of avian life that migrate from as far away as the Amazon rainforest. They use the stupas, a rejuvenated valley, as their migratory stopover during the summer, making it an ideal location for bird banding and research. After years of degradation, including mining and Christmas tree farming, these colorful birds are adapting to the reclaimed nature at the Twin Stupas and bring to mind the exhibition Paola Pivi: I Want It All.

This program is approximately one hour away from Pittsburgh. A bus to and from the museum will be provided as well as a boxed lunch. Further details will be sent prior to the event.
