Screening of Monty and Rose - 4.21.20

Time: 7:00 PM

Location: Barbara Belding Lodge at Brewster Creek

Have you heard about the local Piping Plovers that have captivated bird lovers and nature enthusiasts? “Monty and Rose” tells the story of a pair of endangered Piping Plovers that successfully nested at Chicago’s Montrose Beach in the summer of 2019 — the first to nest in Chicago in 64 years.

The short, independent documentary by local filmmaker Bob Dolgan, chronicles these special birds and their legendary role in a proposed music festival that propelled the birds to national fame.

“Monty and Rose” features interviews with key players in the story, including biologists, birders, volunteers and the advocates who spoke out when the music festival was proposed. Join us after the screening for a Q&A session with the film producer, Forest Preserve District of Kane County naturalists, and other birding experts.
