The scenic woodlands and open landscapes within ten miles of Newburyport provide wonderful places to escape, at least for a while, the current health emergency.
For our Village Talk, Bill Gette, Founding Director of Mass Audubon's Joppa Flats Education Center, will take us on a photographic tour of places where we can experience the beauty of spring wildlife while maintaining social distancing. Some of these venues are well known, others are far less visited.
Bill will show photographs of spring wildflowers, including Wood Anemone, Trout-lily, Bloodroot, Goldthread, and many others. He will also describe many species of birds common to our backyards and those migrants that have just returned from Central and South America. He hopes his talk will encourage us all to explore nature near home.
Bill has long been a favorite speaker here at the Village, not only for his Village Talks, but also for the many wonderful Village events when we walked with Bill through the Parker River Wildlife Refuge, learning about the great variety of wildlife in the company of our Village friends.
Bill was the Founding Director of Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats Education Center and the Sanctuary Director for nearly 20 years until his retirement. He remains very active as President of The Friends of Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and leads domestic and international travel programs for Mass Audubon.
