Birds of the New England Swamp (Speaker:  Peter Christoph) 

And Westborough Community Land Trust Annual Meeting 

(In-person indoor event—masks covering mouth and nose required.)

(Can also be viewed in real time online and on cable television.)

Monday, June 14, 2021, 7:00-9:00 pm 

Knights of Columbus Hall, 17 Willow St. Westborough MA 

Wildlife photographer Peter Christoph presents a narrated slideshow, sharing both his award-winning images and his photographic secrets as he brings you inside a typical New England swamp. Enjoy an intimate look into the many varieties of birds that inhabit our swamps, including ospreys and herons, shorebirds, and woodpeckers and other cavity dwellers. Sloshing through the swamp so you don’t have to, Peter captures the birds’ many activities including nest building, feeding their young, and catching their prey.

WCLT Annual Meeting to follow.

The public is welcome, and may leave before the business meeting portion of the evening.

The entire event will also be broadcast live online at Westborough TV's YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/westboroughtv and on television in Westborough: Verizon 24 and Charter 191. Virtual meeting participation in real time will be available via text messaging.

The Wonderful Westborough Wildflower Hunt will continue throughout the summer and into October. Remember to check WCLT's Facebook page frequently to see what's blooming, and try to find the flowers on your walks!
Summer is coming!

Work will be taking place on creating the accessible trail at Gilmore Pond. This task will require physical labor and/or carpentry skills.
