Greg Miller to Attend and Present During the 2014 Snow Goose Festival


Guest Speaker – Greg Miller

This year during the Snow Goose Festival, Mr. Greg Miller will be on hand at the theater Saturday at 1 PM on February 22nd. Enjoy at of “The Big Year” at the Lamar Theater starring Jack Black, Steve Martin and Owen Wilson! Afterward, Greg will answer your questions about being a Big Year competitor, movie consultant, and one of the birders the story was written about!

Short Bio for Greg – I have been birding since…umm…well I can’t remember because I was too young. I do not remember getting my first pair of binoculars or my first birding trip with my dad. It was my father that got me into birding at an early age. I have been birding for over 50 years and have birded in all 50 states and much of Canada. And I have always been smitten by the birding bug. I love to get outside and go find birds. Every trip out is an adventure!

We are very pleased to have Greg Miller as our guest speaker this year. Greg did a Big Year in 1998, where he tried to see as many species as possible in one year! It’s a somewhat competitive thing in the bird world! The adventures that year were documented in a 2004 non-fiction book turned into a book by Pulitzer Prize winning author Mark Obmascik. And unbelievably, Twentieth Century Fox made a full feature motion picture inspired by the book! Meet Greg and hear about his adventures in a fun program after the banquet.
