Seasons at a New England Bog
Book Talk and Signing with Bob Fleck
Saturday, May 11 / 1 PM – 2 PM

Included with General Admission

New England is home to many fresh and saltwater wetlands, among them bogs and fens. Each of these vital and sensitive habitats is a living, breathing entity that changes every time you stop by.

During this program, photographer Bob Fleck will take us on a photographic journey to witness the dramatic seasonal changes that occur throughout the year; the transitions in the plant and animal communities that call these special environments home. In particular, Bob will focus on one of the most important and spectacular seasonal events – bird migration, highlighting the diverse array of birds that depend on bogs for safety and refuge during their annual migrations.

Afterward, author Bob Fleck will be available to sign books. Copies of Seasons at a New England Bog will be available for sale.*

*Purchase a copy of Seasons at a New England Bog – A Photographic Essay at the VINS Nature Store and receive admission for two to our Nature Center, while supplies last. Offer valid May 11, 2024 only.
