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.
