Birds of the Quabbin Presentation

11:00am - 12:00pm

Treat yourself to an unforgettable slideshow as Peter Christoph shares his experiences looking for wildlife, by land and by boat, at the beautiful and pristine Quabbin Reservoir. A rich diversity of birds call the Quabbin their home, the main attraction being the common loon and bald eagle families that nest here. Several winters ago Peter built a rustic cabin along a river in an area known as the North Quabbin Woods. It was from this base camp that Peter discovered the Magic of the Quabbin and became intimately familiar with its intricate network of channels, coves and islands. You’ll also learn about the creation of the Quabbin Reservoir including a glimpse into the lost towns which gave way to this unlikely wilderness area. Please register by stopping by the circulation desk or by calling 583-3408.

 

Following this event, February 15-18 please feel free to participate in the Audubon Society's Great backyard bird count.
