The title of his lecture:

The Magic of Cranes – Engaging a Global Community

In 1973, a time when crane populations were on the brink of extinction, Dr. Archibald and his colleague, Dr. Ronald Sauey of Cornell University, established the International Crane Foundation (ICF) for the study and preservation of cranes. Now in existence for over 40 years, the foundation has supported conservation projects worldwide preserving landscapes for the survival of cranes.


Immediately following the lecture, the public will have an opportunity to meet Dr. Archibald at a reception held at the Robert A. Hefner Museum of Natural History, 100 Upham Hall. While at the museum, visit its galleries and enjoy light refreshments in the Paul Daniel Classroom.

This event is free and open to the public.

We look forward to seeing you at the
