The passenger pigeon once ruled the skies of North America, numbering in the billions and comprising upwards of 25% of the region’s bird population in the mid-1800s. By 1914, however, the species was extinct—a downfall hastened by America’s growing hunger for land development and hunting. Author and naturalist Joel Greenberg will discuss how the passenger pigeon’s extinction may inform today’s conservation decisions.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
