Join the California Raptor Center (CRC) for a special screening of The Condor’s Shadow, a documentary film that follows a year-in-the-life of endangered species recovery. Set in the ruggedly beautiful Southern California habitat of the iconic California condor, this film explores the extreme lengths that biologists, zookeepers, scientists and a feisty condor named Pitahsi take to pulling the bird back from the brink of extinction.

When: Saturday, Sept. 28th 

4-6 p.m. Reception and Raffle

6:15 p.m. Film Screening

Where: UC Davis campus

Two levels of tickets are available with all proceeds going directly to support the CRC!

A limited number of $50 tickets are available for a reception and raffle at Gunrock Pub. Visit with the filmmaker, Jeff McCloughlin, enjoy wine and cheese and maybe even have your picture taken with one of the CRC’s resident birds. Some cool, local goods will be raffled off as well. (This ticket also admits you to the film.)

A $10 ticket buys you a seat at the screening in the Sciences Lab Building Lecture Hall (SLH 123). Post-screening Q&A with condor program biologist Joseph Brandt and filmmaker Jeff McCloughlin will follow.

Purchase tickets online 

Film screening tickets will also be available at the door of SLH 123. Tickets for the reception must be purchased in advance.
