Mass Audubon to present Merrimack River Birds

Submitted by on April 2, 2012 – 1:59 pm

The Merrimack River is an extraordinary place and home to an incredible variety of birds. Join Northern Essex Community College’s Life Long Learning Program as David Larson from Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats Education Center presents “Merrimack River Birds,” on Thursday, April 19 at 2 p.m. in the David Hartleb Technology Center, Haverhill Campus, 100 Elliott St. Admission is $2.

Larson will discuss the avian life of the Merrimack River and how it’s gone from a waste dump to a vibrant ecosystem that deserves to be cherished and protected.
