From a Press Release.
The Mattabeseck Audubon Society is sponsoring a free program  on May 17, 2014, 8-12pm. It will be indoors, from 8-9 at the deKoven House. The deKoven House is located at 27 Washington Street, Middletown, CT. 06457 at the intersection of Washington Street and deKoven Drive near Exit 15, Rt. 9.

The program, led by bird and wildlife photographer Frank Mantlik, is open to the public. Please call 860-873-9304 or email to register.

An avid birder and naturalist for more than 30 years, Frank has been active in many bird and nature organizations in New England including the Connecticut Ornithological Association (past president), and the New Haven Bird Club.

He is a popular field trip leader and has traveled extensively in the pursuit of birds leading trips to Point Pelee, Block Island, Cape Cod and Montauk Point. An accomplished photographer with his own stock-photo business, Avocet Images, Frank uses his wonderful slides to illustrate lectures to various groups. Publication credits include Natural History, Audubon, Field & Stream, and American Birds. He is most in his element when in the field sharing the joys of nature with others. Frank has led our Cape Cod Shorebird Weekend and leads our Costa Rica Special, Honduras and Texas Spring Migration tours.
