Exhibit Opening: Let Me Tell You About the Birds and the Bees

Exhibit Opening: Let Me Tell You About the Birds and the BeesFriday, August 18, 5:30pm-8pm – Dade Heritage Trust, 190 Southeast 12th Terrace, Miami

Kirsten Hines is a wildlife photographer, writer and conservationist based in Coconut Grove, Florida. Growing up in the Philippines, she watched metropolitan Manila engulf coastal villages and rural landscapes. As the last brilliantly colored bird from her yard fell to a stranger’s slingshot, her love of nature transformed into a passion for environmental conservation. Drawing from this inspiration and from her education as a biologist, Kirsten’s photography highlights nature and wildlife around the world. Her photographic collections include Nature in Abstract, Nature and Travel, and South Florida Birds and Gardens.

This exhibit features a selection of images from her award-winning books, Birds of Fairchild and Attracting Birds to South Florida Gardens. Her goal with this collection is to provide an intimate view of the birds and plants that might be found in a South Florida garden, to connect South Floridians to their non-human neighbors, and to inspire them toward bird-friendly landscaping. South Florida can be “re-greened”, one yard at a time. Complimentary drinks and munchies! @DHTrust @KirstenNatTrav
