Event Description:

Living in the greater Newburyport area, we are blessed by the diversity of wildlife that thrives in backyard sanctuaries, city parks and open spaces, area ponds and wetlands, and the Great Marsh—the extensive salt marshes and mud flats that stretch from Cape Ann to the New Hampshire border.
 
During his PowerPoint presentation, Bill will take you on a photographic tour and show you plants and animals that you can encounter in your back yard or just a short distance down the street. Bill will review aids to field identification, explain the interrelationships among organisms, and discuss behavioral characteristics.
 
Bill Gette is the former Sanctuary Director of Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats Education Center in Newburyport (1996 - 2015). Since 1985, Bill has led natural history travel programs throughout the United States and to all seven continents. International travel destinations have included Antarctica, Belize, Bhutan, Botswana, Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Galápagos Islands, Honduras, India, Kenya, Mexico, Panama, Tanzania, Turkey, and Zambia.
 
In retirement, Bill continues to organize and lead travel programs for Mass Audubon and provide his Celebrating Nature - Talks by Bill Gette workshops and lectures for civic groups, libraries, and retirement communities. His passion is environmental education, and he strives to instill a conservation ethic.
