FULTON, Ill. — “Adventures with Audubon” will be featured this month at the Windmill Cultural Center.
Brian “Fox” Ellis will perform at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 29, at the cultural center in Fulton. The program is being presented by the Volunteer Millers at de Immigrant windmill.
Ellis will portray John James Audubon in this researched monologue. The program draws from Audubon’s journals, essays and letters to his friends and colleagues.
This program was developed as part of the 100th anniversary celebration of the National Wildlife Refuge System. Ellis has performed as Audubon in museums, nature centers, schools and libraries across the United States.
The audience will listen to tales of Audubon’s adventures as he finished something no one had ever accomplished before — drawing every bird in North America.
Since 1980, Ellis has traveled as a performer, educator and storyteller. He has a college degree in education with an emphasis on storytelling and has been a teacher, counselor and mentor. He has a passion for history, environmental issues and local cultures. He is the author of eight books.
The Volunteer Millers are advising the public to arrive early to attend this free event. Refreshments will be served following the presentation.
