Audubon Nebraska is excited to announce actress Lili Taylor will be our lunchtime speaker on Saturday, March 23, at the 2019 Crane Festival. Lili is a stage and screen actress who has appeared in such films as M ystic Pizza, I Shot Andy Warhol, and The Conjuring. Some of her television highlights include "American Crime," HBO's "Six Feet Under" and Fox's "The X-Files," all of which garnered her Emmy nominations. She just completed work on the series "Chambers" for Netflix. She is passionate about bird conservation including her own backyard. She currently serves on the boards of the National Audubon Society and the American Birding Association.

In its 49th year, the festival brings together hundreds of crane enthusiasts from around the country to Kearney, Nebraska, to interact with a wide range of environmental speakers, take part in incredible birding trips, and, best of all, experience the world's largest gathering of Sandhill Cranes!
