Everyone has probably heard about the extinction of the Passenger Pigeon. Some of you have probably heard about more Martha the last known of her species who died in a zoo. But do you know the whole story about how this bird whose massive populations once darkened the sky was so totally exterminated that it came down to one? How did this bird effect American culture and what's going on with the Passenger Pigeon Project that marks the 100th Anniversary of Martha's passing and the end of a species. Join host Sarah Uthoff as she talks with Kyle Bagnall of Chippewa Nature Center.
