SATURDAY, MAY 18
Calidris Canutus and Kings
An Evening with Pete Dunne
The evening begins with a “Meet the Authors” book signing
and cash bar social which is open to all participants. Those
who have registered for the evening program, will proceed to
a buffet dinner followed by the evening program with Pete Dunne.
"Hey Dude. You are not going to believe the numbers of shorebirds on the beaches here," said Jim Seibert, decoy carver and Del Haven resident. "Fantastic," he prophesied. "Unbelievable," he assessed. And he was right. Jim and Joan Seibert's assessment of the concentration of shorebirds and horseshoe crabs on the beaches of Delaware Bay not only vaulted expectations, it made a shambles of the best population estimates of the time.
Join Pete Dunne as he recounts the story of the discovery and early years of study of this celebrated natural spectacle. It begins in 1977, when the volume of birds knit opposing horizons and the bounty of horseshoe crab eggs seemed “limitless."
This evening requires additional registration in advance. Cost is $60 per person.
