Visitors with time to spare should ask one of the Newport Bay Conservancy volunteers at the Information Desk to run the “Salt Marsh Seasons” movie, which is shown on request. This stunning work portrays the freedom of birds in flight, the melody of flowing water, and the all-encompassing majesty of the Bay itself. It shows the coming and going of different migrating birds as the seasons change. The movie is presented with surround sound and up to five separate images showing concurrently on the theater’s big screen. Salt Marsh Seasons was created by film-maker and Orange County resident, Jack Couffer, whose critically-acclaimed work includes “Jonathan Livingston Sea Gull” and extensive projects for Disney World.
