“Going, Going, Gone?” featured in Metro Parks publication


“Buttons”

The Executive Director of Metro Parks, John O’Meara, wrote a thoughtful article about the loss of the passenger pigeon in the Autumn 2014 issue of Parkscope. He discusses our exhibit “Going, Going, Gone?” and mentions Buttons, one of the world’s last passenger pigeons and the centerpiece of our exhibit. Here’s an excerpt from the article.

“The centennial of the death of the last passenger pigeon should serve as an important reminder to us all that we share our habitat with many other species. Let’s work together to create better habitat for humans and wildlife. Let’s work together to prevent the loss of another species like the beautiful passenger pigeon.”
