6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Reception at 6pm, presentation at 7pm: "Past, Present and Future: Tales of lessons learned while growing up in the wild British birding scene, from travels around the world to living today in Cape May, NJ"
Richard Crossley is an internationally acclaimed birder, award winning author and photographer. Crazy,
wildly passionate, driven and single-minded are just a few of the words used to describe his love of
birding and the outdoors.
After 20 years hiding in the business world while raising his family, Richard set himself a new goal
- to popularize birding and the outdoors through books and multi-media. By making nature more
fashionable, he hopes to encourage the youth of today to become the game-changers of tomorrow.
"The Crossley ID Guide" turned nature book design upside down. Based on what we now know about
the brain and learning, he believes the design of "The Crossley ID Guide" will help people improve their
ID skills and see birds the way they really are. Constantly thinking outside the box and with five books
and media projects in the works, he believes the future of birding is an adventure.
Richard has contributed to most major birding publications, is frequently heard on radio and is a highly
sought-after public speaker. He firmly believes that the time is right to change the face of birding. The
rumors that he will not stop until birding has become popular and fashionable in the USA and around
the World are absolutely true!
