Educators, join us for a film, food, and fun!

Event Details

Come and preview the IMAX® documentary film, Wings Over Water, which will be playing at the Bullock Museum until December 31, 2022. Wings Over Water, narrated by Michael Keaton, tells the compelling story of three amazing bird species—the Sandhill Crane, the Yellow Warbler, and the Mallard Duck—with extraordinary footage of their fascinating behaviors. All of them depend on the wetlands for their survival. After the film, we will have lunch, discuss the curricular connections to the film's topics, and try out hands-on classroom activities. There will also be prize drawings and CPE certificates provided, SBEC approved.

The event is free of charge, and parking is complimentary in the Museum’s garage. Please note there is construction on the roads around the building. Follow the signs to the parking garage entrance on 18th Street, between Congress and Colorado.

About Wings Over Water

Discover the compelling story of three amazing bird species—the Sandhill Crane, the Yellow Warbler, and the Mallard Duck—with extraordinary footage of their fascinating behaviors. All of them depend on the wetlands for their survival. As the glaciers retreated at the end of the last ice age, they left an astounding gift of connected rivers, lakes, and wetlands across the heartland of North America. Today, these largely unknown water highways remain an oasis for wildlife, from the herds of bison that still roam part of the Great Plains to the swaying grasslands, wildflowers, and vital honeybees that pollinate our crops and especially for the millions of magnificent birds that migrate along these “flyways.”
