A world renowned and award winning nature photographer is visiting southeast Kansas on Thursday February 28 at 7 pm. The Sperry-Galligar Audubon Society as part of the group’s monthly meeting is hosting Noppadol Paothong. He’s recently held events at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and at the Springfield Conservation Center.  Paothong will be giving his Sage Grouse of the West presentation starting at 7 pm, at Yates Hall at Pittsburg State University. I recently spoke to Christine Brodsky of the Sperry-Galligar Audubon who told us about Paothong’s work with the Missouri Department of Conservation and his latest book, Sage Grouse, Icon Of The West released in 2018. The event is open to the public.
