Special Screening Event
The California condor is an almost mythical sight when its 10-foot wingspan is spotted aloft, and its odyssey epitomizes man's impact on the wilderness. It's an epic tale of allowing something majestic to almost slip away, then loudly answering the mandate to recover it.
Today, the condor again casts a wild shadow over the west, buoyed by the updrafts of those who answered the call of preservation.
Many challenges remain for the condor. The Condor's Shadow
chronicles how a driven few are working against the odds to help the iconic species fly free once again.
Immediately following the movie, learn more about condor recovery efforts in a panel discussion with filmmaker Jeff McLoughlin
, lead field biologist Joseph Brandt, and Oregon Zoo condor keeper Kelli Walker
