Taylor Pond — Wildlife, Water & Recreation, June 29

Coming to Taylor Pond since first moving to Maine 30 years ago, naturalist Dana Little will talk about the natural history of the pond, including its geological origins, Native American history, colonial history, ecology, wildlife diversity, water quality and recreation.  His experience as President of the Taylor Pond Association, membership in the Lake Stewards of Maine, life-long bird-watcher and natural history observer have provided him with extensive knowledge of this precious resource in Auburn.

Dana grew up in Amherst, Massachusetts, and became a bird-watcher when his grandfather gave him opera glasses when he was 6.  Since then, he has never stopped observing and learning about the natural world!  His undergraduate study was in zoology with an emphasis on ecology and limnology (the study of lakes).  In addition to having served as President of the Taylor Pond Association for the past 15 years, Dana also is a board member of Androscoggin Land Trust, which works to preserve wild places for people to enjoy and agricultural areas to help sustain local farms.

This program will be presented as part of our Adult Summer Reading Program, “Oceans of Possibilities” wherein adults will spend time exploring Maine’s waterways.  It will take place in person, and registration is required.  Register online here or email dwallace@auburnpubliclibrary.org.
