Bluebird Man

Winner of the 2016 Eric Moe Sustainability Film Award!

Showing in the 2016 Festival as a part of the Eric Moe Sustainability Film Award programThe award is co-presented by the National Wildlife Federation.

People call Al Larson “The Bluebird Man” for good reason:  at 92, this self-taught conservationist has dedicated 35 years of his life to saving North America’s bluebirds by maintaining a network of over 300 “nestboxes” in the highlands of Idaho that provide vital support to a recovering population. Bluebird Man aims to inspire our next generation of citizen scientists, reveling in the humble effort of Larson’s endeavor and the grandeur of the birds he’s fighting to save.
