The Birds We'll Never See: A Look at Extinct Birds
Thursday, March 22 at 7:00PM at the Mattapoisett Free Public Library. A brief look at the birds we'll never see, the reasons why they went extinct, and what it means today. Inspired by his son's interest in a drawing of the extinct Great Moa in the book Gurney's Guide to Feathered Friends, Justin Barrett began wondering what other birds we would never get to see. Join the Nasketucket Bird Club for this very special presentation at their monthly meeting. The Mattapoisett Free Public Library is located at 7 Barstow Street and is handicapped accessible. The program is free and open to the public.

Upcoming Walks:
