Loon program at the Goodrich Memorial Library
Raymond Richer a self-taught photographer, has been studying, researching and experimenting with nature photography for over 30 years. Even today, with nearly 30 years of practice, he still finds each and every venture out into nature, a learning experience. Together Ray and Evelyn, his wife, own a home-based gallery located on the shore of Joe’s Pond in Cabot Vermont. They affectionately call their home Loon Cove. Wildlife surrounds them now on a daily basis. Ray and Evelyn live with the Common Loon just off their shoreline in the spring and watch the loons all during their nesting season as they raise their chicks within sight of the gallery. Through the seasons, they have visits from deer, moose, bobcat and fox all in their backyard. Surrounded by inspiration, they continue to record images of these beautiful creatures. In this presentation Ray will show the full range of loon life from courtship to egg hatching. Learn more about this fascinating bird that captures the hearts of all who hear their calls across the waters of our many lakes and get answers to all your loon questions from a man who knows. The Goodrich is handicapped accessible. This program is free and open to all. For further information call 334-7902.
