Those amazing loons!

Nature photographer John Rockwood will be back at the library on Wednesday, March 30, at 7 pm with a brand new multimedia loon program called "Diving In: An In-depth Look at the Common Loon's Fascinating and Mysterious Behavior." John's been out watching loons again, and this time he's documented some interesting antics that we don't always get to witness. This is loons like you've never seen them before.

John is the author of The Story of Grapenut about the young loon that "adopted" him one summer on Lake Massebesic. John's first program for us was all about Grapenut. We got to see him grow up over the course of the summer. John has also presented programs here on the wildlife of Yellowstone National Park and puffins and other shore birds of the northern New England coast. John's slides are magnificent, and his commentary is laced with humor and obvious affection for his subjects. We're excited to have him return and share his further adventures with his favorite birds.

This program is free and open to adults, teens, and children age 8 and up. Seating is limited and we recommend you reserve seats by clicking here or calling 424-5021.
