Zoe Yost – Owling at the Moon: Explorations on Silent Wings

Speaker: Zoe Yost

Zoe Yost is a fourteen-year-old naturalist, writer, artist, musician, and yogini. An active birder since age six, she has presented at and co-led birding walks with the Delmarva Ornithological Society, raised over $5,000 for the Delaware Bird-A-Thon, and worked as a banding assistant for Dr. Ian Stewart. In addition to the East Coast, she has birded in California, Wyoming, Alaska, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Western Caribbean, and Great Britain. An award-winning artist, she has participated in art exhibitions at the Wilmington Art Loop, the Delmarva Ornithological Society, the Entomological Society of America, and the Center for the Creative Arts. Zoe is also an award-winning pianist and violist and an avid writer.

Owls, the silent wings of the night, have fascinated humankind for centuries, both in positive and negative ways. But, what becomes visible to the mind’s eye when this cloak of myth and speculation is thrown off? Chronicling both fact and fiction, enthusiastic owlaholic Zoe Yost takes her audience on a rollicking expedition through original photographs, artwork, and writing to shed light on these elusive owls, one of the dark’s most iconic inhabitants.

Greeting cards of the presenter’s artwork and photography will also be available for purchase as a fundraiser for the 2017 Delaware Bird-A-Thon. (Card purchases are tax-deductible.)
