“Winged Migration” showing at the Northwest Stream Center

Nov 29, 2013

The Adopt A Stream Foundation and Snohomish County Parks are teaming up to offer you relief from the holiday hustle and bustle.

Attend a free showing of the film “Winged Migration” at the Adopt A Stream Foundation’s Northwest Stream Center Auditorium in Snohomish County’s McCollum Park, 600 128th St. SE, Everett at 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20.

“All around the world, birds are in migration,” said Adopt A Stream Foundation Director Tom Murdoch.

“Eagles have arrived along the Skagit River from the far north to eat salmon. Trumpeter Swans and Snow Geese can now been seen in farm fields of Washington, and occasionally, there are some Snowy Owls from Canada taking in the scene.”

The film was made by five film crews following a rich variety of bird migrations through 40 countries and each of the seven continents.

The film team totaled more than 450 people. Seventeen pilots and 14 cinematographers used planes, gliders, helicopters and balloons to fly along side, above, below and in front of their subjects.

Rolling Stone said “Winged Migration” is “A movie miracle! It soars! You feel privileged!”

Attend this Academy Award Nominated film and you will get to “fly” along with the world’s most beautiful birds through areas as remote as the Arctic and the Amazon and as populated as Paris and New York City.

Murdoch said the film is best suited for mature middle school kids to adults – not young children.

He advises viewers to bring a seat cushion to make the NW Stream Center Auditorium lecture chairs more comfortable.

The 89-minute film is free, however reservations are required.

Reservations and driving directions to the NW Stream Center are available by calling 425-316-8592 or visiting the contact section of the Adopt A Stream Foundation’s website at www.streamkeeper.org.
