On the Wild Side at Yellowstone

Auburn wildlife photographer John Rockwood and his wife Sue will be back at the Merrimack Library on Tuesday, August 18, at 7 p.m. John's February program on loons was one of the most popular programs we've ever offered, and I jumped at the chance to have him return for another informative and entertaining evening.

This time, John's program is "The Wildlife of Yellowstone National Park: From Ground Squirrels to Grizzly Bears." His slides document his and Sue's June 2008 trip (it snowed some nights!), and you can count on John to have some funny stories about their adventures among the unpredictable wild critters.

John says the loons are having a tough time on Massabesic Lake this summer. All the rain we've been complaining about has been catastrophic for the loons as rising waters inundate the nests built close to the shore. There haven't been many loon families to photograph from John's kayak office.

Seating for Yellowstone wildlife is limited, and this program is expected to fill up fast, so plan to reserve seats ASAP by calling 424-5021 or emailing.
