Event Details

D&R Greenway declares “Earth Month,” opening its newest exhibition of fine art wildlife carvings donated by Jay Vawter, on April 22. 

“Color! – From White Swan to Black Duck”  showcases nature’s literally brilliant use of color in birds, not limited to ducks  Splashes of vividness serve a broad array of vital  purposes, from species identification to wing-strengthening; mate selection to protection from predators. 

Visitors may view the newest exhibition in the land trust’s library on business hours of business days.  The public is invited to “Coloration in Birds”, a linked presentation by Princeton University Wildlife Biologist, David Wilcove, Ph.D., on Wednesday, Ma7 22.  Doors open at 6:30; the program will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m.   To attend the program, register by calling 609-924-4646, or rsvp@drgreenway.org.

This newest array includes examples from a Picasso-esque standing wood duck and an arresting standing puffin, to comparison pairs of black ducks and cinnamon teals.  Although there will be a white swan and a snowy owl, white does not exist as a pigment in birds.  Information panels will explain the uses of color throughout avian life.  The Vawter collection includes birds crafted by America’s finest carvers.
