Event Details

New York author Eli J. Knapp brings his fun, family-friendly book of essays The Delightful Horror of Family Birding to the beautiful Tracy Aviary. Join Eli for a reading and discussion of 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.

Here in Utah, we live on the traditional and ancestral homelands of the Shoshone, Paiute, Goshute and Ute Tribes. Today we celebrate the people who first called this land home. We remember the struggles and tragedies they endured and recognize the fight for justice and autonomy that Indigenous Peoples still face. ⁠
