Tuesday, May 21—7:00–8:30 PM Birds ‘n Bites: Secrets of Raven Conversations— Language & Meaning from the World’s Largest Songbird  

Please join us on Tuesday, May 21 at 7:00 PM for a virtual presentation with George Bumann, professional naturalist, artist, and author with an academic background in wildlife ecology.

Ravens are among the most intelligent and mysterious of birds. Would you like to know what they’re saying? Modern science is beginning to show us that animals–like ravens–are conveying more than we might realize. Join George Bumann for a deep dive into the vocabulary of ravens where he will share insights from over twenty years of personal field study, along with contemporary research, traditional ecological knowledge, and his award-winning vocal impersonations.

George lives with his family in Yellowstone National Park where they have a front row seat to some of the world’s most iconic wildlife. George’s art and educational programs have been featured in numerous newspapers, and on television, radio, and online through the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, and Tedx Bozeman.

Along with his partner Jenny Golding, George co-founded, a lifestyle and educational platform featuring dispatches from the field, the highly acclaimed Yellowstone Summit event, and the online animal language course Eavesdropping on Wild Conversations.

When not sculpting, George can be found on a hillside observing, hiking, or paddling in any number of wild destinations; he is expecting the release of his first book, Eavesdropping on Animals: What we can Learn from Wildlife Conversations, in October of 2024.

Please note that we will resume our tradition of introducing the GSLA Board of Directors at the beginning of this May meeting. These are the people currently responsible for doing all the good work of running this organization which has been operational since 1912!! Now you'll have the chance to put faces with names.
