PRESENTATION :: 2018 The Year of The Bird

  • Jacob Edwards Library Southbridge, MA US (map)

Thursday, Oct. 18, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm 

The Jacob Edwards Library is pleased to invite Dale Monette to return and present an homage to birds,from his extensive collection of photographs taken in the Quabbin area and further afield.

2018 marks the centennial of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the most powerful and important bird-protection law ever passed. In honor of this milestone, National Geographic, the National Audubon Society, the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and BirdLife International have joined forces with more than 100 other organizations and millions of people around the world to celebrate 2018 as the “Year of the Bird.” This effort aims to heighten public awareness of birds because of their wonder and beauty—and because they symbolize nature’s interconnectedness and the importance of caring for our shared planet. The Jacob Edwards Library is pleased to contribute to this program.

Mr. Monette's work is available to view on his website North Quabbin Photography . He regularly updates the site with new images from his hikes in and around the Quabbin. In 2017, Dale Monette launched his book of photography Secret Lives of the Quabbin Watershed.

All welcome! Light refreshments provided by the Friends of Jacob Edwards Library.

This program is presented in conjunction with 
The Last Green Valley Walktober series that encompasses activities in 35 towns in the southern Worcester County area of Massachusetts and into Connecticut following the path of the Quinebaug and Shetucket rivers 

Sponsored by The Last Green Valley Walktober and Friends of Jacob Edwards Library.
