Sam Fried, of Flights of Fancy Adventure, will present a program on polar bears and polar birds at 7:30 pm on Tuesday, September 18 at Kellogg Environmental Center, 500 Hawthorne Avenue Derby, CT.

The program explores a trip that Mr. Fried took a few years ago to Churchill, Manitoba, where he spent a week expecting to see ice, snow, bears and winter birds. During his trip he learned what happens to the polar bears of Hudson Bay when the bay doesn’t freeze on time and what happens to the birds that are migrating in and out of Churchill. His presentation also features beautiful photos of bears and cubs in their normal wintry habitat. A story about Sam’s trip appeared in the Nov/Dec 2008 issue of Bird Watcher’s Digest.

Sam Fried is the founder of Flights of Fancy Adventures, LLC, a birding, photography and natural history company that offers small group, high quality trips to North, Central and South American destinations. He is a past President of Hartford Audubon Society.

Sam has published over 1000 photographs and 54 feature articles in field guides, books, newspapers and magazines worldwide, including National Audubon, Birder's World, Bird Watcher's Digest, Birding and Living Bird Quarterly magazines. He also wrote several chapters of the Insight Guides book on Birding in North America, published by The Discovery Channel.

Suggested donation of $4.00/adult and $2/student or Naugatuck Valley Audubon member

Light refreshments will be served after the meeting.
