Eli Knapp Book Talk at Moab Festival of Science

New York author Eli J. Knapp brings his fun, family-friendly book of essays The Delightful Horror of Family Birding to the 2019 Moab Festival of Science. Join Eli for a presentation on his birding adventures across the country (and the world) and working to instill a love of nature in the next generation. From the mating grounds of Ecuador’s cock-of-the-rock to the phoebe nest just outside his back door in western New York, Eli J. Knapp explores the roller-coaster ride of sharing nature with the next generation. Throughout each essay in this captivating collection, Knapp delights in unraveling ecological puzzles, injecting humor at every turn and learning vital lessons as he takes on everything but cynicism. Along the way, he laughs at misfortune, marvels at nature’s mysteries, and learns from all his fellow travelers.

Whether traveling solo or with his students or children, Knapp levels his gaze on the birds that share our skies, showing how these feathered wonders can be a portal to deeper relationships, ecological understanding, and newfound joy. Eli J. Knapp is professor of Intercultural Studies and Biology at Houghton College and director of the Houghton in Tanzania program. Knapp is a regular contributor to Bird Watcher’s Digest, New York State Conservationist, and other publications. An avid birder, hiker, and kayaker, he lives in Fillmore, New York, with his wife and children.

This event is supported in part by Utah Humanities and Utah Arts & Museums, with funding from the State of Utah and the National Endowment for the Arts.
