Audubon takes viewers on a backyard safari in Geauga County – Tuesday, April 20 at 7 pm (arrive early)


Wildlife adventure can be found not only in faraway destinations. Nature enthusiast Chris Parker will share his face to face encounters with “The Wildlife of Bass Lake” in a virtual program 7:00 pm Tuesday, April 20 for Blackbrook Audubon Society. Everyone is invited to register on the event page at blackbrookaudubon.org to receive a link to the program in an email.

Chris has documented the variety of wildlife that swims, flies and walks at Geauga Park District’s Bass Lake Preserve in Munson Township. He will reveal nature moments that unfolded in front of him while on his quiet canoe with a camera, coffee, and patient observation. He’s watched Canada Geese squabble as one dove completely underwater to escape the challenger, with the second one diving in pursuit. In this presentation, Chris will detail his encounters with muskrat, Bald Eagles, river otters, mink, Osprey, swans, loons, Prothonotary Warblers and much more.

While the program starts at 7:00 p.m., Trevor Wearstler, the host and president of Blackbrook, will allow people into the meeting about 6:30 p.m. to familiarize themselves with the software features or to chat with other attendees.
