Times: 6:30 p.m. social, 7:00 p.m. program
Location: Church Unitarian Universalist

In a fitting tribute to Walter Clifton, Tulane Professor Donata Henry will present Walter’s spectacular bird and nature photographs. Many of Walter’s photographs capture secretive birds nesting in the Honey Island Swamp, birds Donata knows intimately from the bird banding station she runs there.

Walter started birding and photographing birds in 1981, using a Canon Lands End 2E body coupled with a high quality 35 to 350 mm lens. He explained that he used “a $1400 lens on a $300 camera body,” because the lens is what’s important. The quality of his pictures comes not only from his technical skills but also from the patience and hard work that went into taking each photograph. Walter was an active of the Orleans Audubon Society and a founding member of the Northshore Bird Club. He passed away on April 3, 2018. Join us in celebrating and appreciating his wonderful talents.

Meetings held at the Community Church Unitarian Universalist are free and open to the public. Community Church Unitarian Universalist, 6690 Fleur de Lis Drive, New Orleans, Louisiana 70124, is located in Lakeview, on the southwest corner of Fleur de Lis Drive and 38th Street.
