Those who are naturally curious about the outdoor world are invited to a presentation by author and photographer Mary Holland, who will share her passion for the flora, fauna, and landscapes of New England on Wednesday, April 10 at 7 p.m. at the Millers River Environmental Center (100 Main St., Athol). The program is offered by the Athol Bird and Nature Club and supported through a grant by the Mass Cultural Council and is free and open to the public.
Holland is the author of Naturally Curious: A Photographic Field Guide and Month-by-Month Journey through the Fields, Woods, and Marshes of New England. That book won a 2011 National Outdoor Book Association award in the nature guidebook category and has received accolades from David Sibley (The Sibley Guide to Birds), Bill McKibben (The End of Nature), Richard Louv (The Last Child in the Woods), and others. Holland is also the author of the children’s book Milkweed Visitors. Signed copies of her books will be available for purchase at the meeting.
The Athol Bird and Nature Club is an active group of people sharing an appreciation of nature’s many forms. The club manages the Millers River Environmental Center and maintains a natural history collection there, holds meetings featuring members or outside speakers, offers field trips all over southern New England, hosts intensive workshops and institutes on specific natural history topics, and organizes regional biological inventories, including biodiversity surveys, bird counts, and butterfly and dragonfly records.
