Rejoin photographic journalist, Rick Bunting, as he returns to present a new program entitled “Florida Reflections” as part of the Sanibel-Captiva Audubon lecture series, at the new start time of 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 20, at the Sanibel Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way. Rick will again utilize his unique perspective and excellent photos to expand on Nature here in Florida to reveal many of its interesting beings and their activities.
San-Cap Audubon welcomes family attendance at this presentation. Rick’s program is ideally suited for both adults and school aged children. Bring your children or grandchildren for an interesting and educational experience. Children sixteen and under are welcome donation free.
Here is Rick’s program content in his own words:
“It has been my good fortune to be able to spend a little winter time in Florida for the past twenty years. During that time I have had many wonderful moments seeing and photographing a wide variety of birds along side many fellow birders I have had the pleasure to meet. This program is a grateful snowbird’s way of sharing some of those special birding memories with the members and friends of the San-Cap Audubon Society.”
Rick Bunting is Professor Emeritus from the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam where he served as Chair of Music Education and Conductor of the renowned Crane Chorus. His retirement has allowed him to pursue his interest in birds and other wildlife. The idea of taking pictures evolved from a simple desire to share what he was seeing. That sharing has become programs presented to a wide variety of organizations including bird, garden and naturalist clubs, Audubon groups, and service, social and church groups. Rick has also developed a personal online following of those who are privileged to receive his almost daily photographic email updates.
This is the seventh of eight Sanibel-Captiva Audubon Society lectures to be held in 2020. As always, all are welcome to attend. Doors open at 6:15 p.m., and parking is available at the Community House as well as across Periwinkle Way in the Herb Strauss Theater parking area. A $10.00 donation per adult attendee is appreciated with proceeds after costs being used to promote conservation on Sanibel and in Florida.
