2016 GEAS Banquet & Silent Auction
March 12, 6pm, Banquet Speaker: Dr. Kenneth Dial, The Evolution of Flight
Dr. Kenneth Dial will be talking about ‘Waxing and Waning of Wings: Ecology and Evolution of Avian Locomotion’.
Dr. Kenneth Dial is a professor in the Division of Biological Sciences at the University of Montana. His research program has focused on the biomechanics, ecology and evolution of avian flight. Ken took a keen interest in aeronautics and biology as a teenager. For more than 20 years, he was acting director of the UM Flight Laboratory as well as director of UM Field Research Station at Fort Missoula. He teaches graduate classes in evolutionary ecology in East Africa. With more than 30 years of experience as a pilot, Ken is certified to fly several types of jet aircraft, but prefers backcountry flying into hidden dirt and grass airstrips. Ken hosted 26 episodes of “All Bird TV” on the Discovery Channel’s Animal Planet. He currently is transitioning from his professorial duties to wildlife conservation efforts in Tanzania, Kenya, southern California and western Montana.
Join us for a fun-filled evening, with a social hour and silent auction beginning at 6pm and dinner served at 7pm.

My Kitchen Window by Hilda LarsonHilda Larson began writing a column for the Golden Eagle Audubon Society in the 1980s. She began writing a column for the Southwestern Idaho Birds Association in 2007. She also drew cartoons and sketches of birds and birders for the newsletters. She continued writing for both groups until her death in 2014.
Sue Norton and Cathy Eells have compiled a collection of Hilda Larson's columns and sketches from the newsletters. (Book design and layout by Niels Nokkentved.) It also contains a history of Al Larson and Hilda's project of setting up blue bird trails in Idaho.
The book will be of interest to people who like to watch birds and other wildlife and those who would like a glimpse into the world outside the windows in Hilda's life. She writes with great warmth, curiosity, and humor. Consider buying a copy for yourself and for the birdwatchers on your holiday shopping list.
You can order a copy by contacting Sue Norton at 378-4248 or at email@example.com or Cathy Eells at 459-4435 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Copies are $13. Sue will mail one to you for $16. Proceeds will go to GEAS and SIBA.
Your membership provides GEAS, an all volunteer organization, the ability to do meaningful work in our community.
