I'll be speaking at the MDI Science Cafe about Bond, his uncle (the famous painter Carroll Tyson) and their long history with the birds of Mount Desert Island -- from Tyson's renowned fine-arts prints to their unique field guide the island's birds.
Tyson's prints sell for thousands of dollars and are highly sought-after. One of my favorites is the Pileated Woodpecker print. (Saw one -- the print and the bird -- on MDI just last week!)
The Science Cafe is sponsored by the MDI Biological Laboratory, a rapidly growing, independent, nonprofit biomedical research institution.
The laboratory's mission is to improve human health and well-being through basic research, education, and development ventures that transform discoveries into cures.
