Birds of the Quabbin

Saturday, October 13, 2018

2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

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.  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.
