Heads up, Humboldt:
While the county's masking mandate has been lifted, Public Health is still strongly recommending masking indoors in public, social distancing and "avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces." COVID-19 is still with us, so be sure to check the protocols at event venues.


Why Birdsong is Music - theTheory and Application

When: Fri., May 13, 6:30-8 p.m. 2022

On the HUUF patio (coffee, tea and goodies will be served from 6:30-7pm and the talk will be from 7 - 8 pm). Dr. Doug Carroll will discuss his theory of defining music to include birdsong and not just human artistic creation. The talk will focus on the songs and sounds of birds but also will feature those of insects and mammals, and additionally he will cover natural sound recording techniques.  The program will conclude with an interspecies musical piece performed live by Carroll on cello and accompanied by recorded birdsong.  This will be the first in-person program hosted by Redwood Region Audubon Society since the pandemic, and weather permitting, it will be held outdoors, so it may also incorporate some live bird melodies! (In case of rain, the program will be on Zoom. See RRAS.org for the link.)
