Meet Dorian Anderson...Our Special Guest for Wings 2017

The Wings Over the Hills Nature Festival is very pleased to announce Dorian Anderson that Dorian Anderson, the bicyclist birder, will be the featured guest for the 2017 event to be held in Fredericksburg, Texas on April 28, 29 and 30, 2017. Anderson will headline the seventh annual Wings Over the Hills festival by recounting his “Biking Birds” eco-adventure in 2014 and sharing his expertise on field trips to Texas Hill Country birding venues. During 2014, Anderson cycled over 17,800 miles through 28 states while observing 617 species. He peddled, hiked, and kayaked the entire distance and raised more the $50,000 for bird conservation..

Anderson began birding at a very young age in the Philadelphia area, spending much of his time in national wildlife refuges and other birding hotspots. He interrupted his birding adventures by studying Cell and Molecular Biology at Stanford, eventually earning a Ph.D. in Developmental Genetics at New York University. He followed with a postdoctoral position at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston. He left his postdoctoral studies in 2013 to complete his incredible birding odyssey in 2014. Please plan to meet and join Dorian in Fredericksburg in April 2017.

 

Registration will begin in early February 2017
