                                             Our Guest Speaker, Christopher Paparo, will  
                                             look at the sea’s feathered friends in this multi-media
                                             presentation. Find out what Long Island birds can be                                                observed close to the shore. Learn details about 
                                             wading birds, waterfowl, and raptors, as well as 
                                             where to go to observe each of them.

                                             Chris, who was born and raised on Long Island, 
                                             has been exploring the wilds of the island for over 
                                             30 years. As a wildlife photographer, writer and
                                             lecturer, he enjoys bringing public awareness to 
the diverse wildlife that calls the island home. His passion for coastal ecology, fishing and the outdoors led him to obtain a BS in Marine Science from LIU/Southampton where he currently manages the new Marine Sciences Center at the Southampton campus of Stony Brook University.

An award winning member of the Outdoor Writers Association of America and the New York State Outdoor Writers Association, Chris writes monthly columns for On The Water Magazine and The Northforker. Additionally, he is a freelance writer for several other fishing and wildlife related publications. Although his work tends to focus on marine life, everything in the natural world is fair game.

He shares his adventures on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Vimeo and YouTube at @fishguyphotos or by visiting his website at www.fishguyphotos.com.
