“A Passion for Birds” is a unique, interpretive program which helps people to understand and connect with birds and other wildlife. Using masks, comedy, and lots of audience participation, artist Henry Lappen explores how and why birds have adapted to their environment. He explains the science while demonstrating how the birds move and act. Participants get to don the masks and soar as Eagles, stalk as Herons, and swim as Puffins. The show fits the science curriculum framework of the Department of Education for adaptation and nature units for elementary grades.
