John and Cathy Sill will present a photo journey through Alaska featuring the majesty of Denali, the frozen Arctic Ocean, glaciers, whales and seals as well as shorebirds and seabirds adorned in their breeding plumage. The Sills are noted birders, illustrators and avian authors who have contributed a large wildlife mural to the Macon County Public Library in Franklin. They recently traveled to Denali, Barrow, Nome and the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. Their program, “Birding in Alaska,” is sponsored by the Highlands Plateau Audubon Society and will be given at the Hudson Library in Highlands. A mixer with refreshments will begin at 7:00 p.m. with the presentation starting at 7:30 p.m.
