It's Not Trivial

Think you know your water fowl? You will have your chance to prove it Saturday when the Ripley Waterfowl Conservancy holds a Virtual Trivia Night at 7PM. Participants will compete for prizes while demonstrating their knowledge of water fowl, nature and conservancy.

The cost of admission is $5 per person, individually or in teams of up to four. There will be three rounds of 15 environmentally themed questions.

The Zoom session will use the chat function to submit answers. The team with the most points at the end of round three will be the winner. The winners will receive a prize package consisting of a Ripley t-shirt and calendar, a mini-photo session for each team member, and a $25 gift certificate to the Krafted Brew Lab in Litchfield.

Ripley Waterfowl Conservancy grew out of the passion its founder, S Dillon Ripley—a professor of Ornithology at Yale University, director of Yale’s Peabody Museum of Natural History and later Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution—had for waterfowl. As a teenager in the 1920s he began collecting waterfowl at his home in Litchfield, a collection that today includes more than 80 species from around the world. As a breeding facility, the conservancy focuses on maintaining genetic diversity of rare and endangered species and operates an education center.
