Join thousands of people across the country in celebrating Black Birders Week May 30 – June 5, 2021. Nature in the City, Golden Gate Audubon, and Outdoor Afro are teaming up to host a free virtual film screening of The Falconer, and we hope you’ll come!
The Falconer is a documentary following Master Falconer Rodney Stotts on his mission to build a bird sanctuary and provide access to nature for his stressed community. It’s a story of second chances: for injured birds of prey, for an abandoned plot of land, for a group of teenagers who have dropped out of high school, and for Rodney himself.

We are hosting this free virtual screening with partners across the country to spotlight Black birders and the joy and healing experienced in the natural world, as well as the work to be done to combat racism and promote inclusivity in nature.
Due to social distancing, we may be watching separately, but we are in this together!
