John Meader, of Northern Stars Planetarium Services, will be featured in a special presentation in his traveling, inflatable planetarium at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 25, in the auditorium of Prescott Hall, the main building of the Good Will-Hinckley campus on U.S. Route 201 in Hinckley.

Attendees can learn how birds have adapted to their environments by studying varying styles of beaks, claws, wings and feathers. They also can learn why birds migrate, which birds do and which birds don’t, and why various species follow very different routes. See how the stars, magnetism, wind, land features and the sun all play a role affecting where different species go and how they get there. These are illustrated on a full-dome world map showing important migration routes. The program closes with a demonstration of bird calls.
