August 20 to November 27, 2016

A multi-disciplinary art installation that explores and celebrates the biology, beauty, and bounty of the Pacific Flyway–a major north-south flight path for migratory birds in America that extends from Alaska to Patagonia. The Flyway is viewed through a range of lenses: wildlife habitat, agricultural backdrop, recreational commons, conservation story, and inspirational phenomenon for artists, writers, and everyone in California and beyond. Produced by Exhibit Envoy, the exhibition grew out of a partnership between three Sacramento-area visual artists – Valerie Constantino, Glenda Drew and Ann Savageau – and various wildlife associations, scientists, and scholars. Bird specimens from the Hopland Research Extension Center and Lake Sonoma Visitor Center will provide visitors with an opportunity to see regional Flyway birds up close.
