comparing and contrasting the landscapes and wildlife through pictures

Nature talk with Brian Willson: Birds of Midcoast Maine, Utah’s Wasatch Range

Coastal Mountains Land Trust will co-host an online Zoom presentation titled “Birds of Midcoast Maine and Utah’s Wasatch Range with Brian Willson”  Thursday, May 13, at 6 p.m., with the Camden Public Library. 

In his years of near-daily hikes to the summit of Beech Hill Preserve with his good dog, Captain Jack, avid birder and amateur nature photographer Brian Willson ended up with thousands of photos of wild Maine birds. A couple of years ago, on something of a lark, Willson moved to Salt Lake City, Utah, where his routine hikes with Jack have become quite a bit steeper. By now he’s got a pretty good photo portfolio of western species.

Join CPL for Willson’s virtual slide show (followed by Q & A) comparing and contrasting the landscapes and wildlife of Maine’s Midcoast and Utah’s Wasatch Range.

While Willson and Jack agree that Utah’s high desert has a special allure, chances are they might end up back in coastal Maine someday.

Coastal Mountains Land Trust has worked since 1986 to permanently conserve land to benefit the natural and human communities of the western Penobscot Bay. The Land Trust manages over 12,000 acres and maintains over 50 miles of permanent trails for public access.

The Coastal Mountains Nature Program is a monthly education series hosted by Coastal Mountains Land Trust. Walks and talks explore the natural history of Midcoast Maine, helping educate the public about environment issues and increase opportunities for residents to explore the outdoors. This program will be online until it is safe to gather.
