Stanton Bird Club Hosts Lecture on History of New Zealand

AUBURN, ME (November 25, 2022) — The Stanton Bird Club is hosting the second in its 2022-23 lecture series, this time with a focus on the natural and cultural history of New Zealand. President Jeri Maurer and Vice President Nancy Kleckner will be sharing photographs and experiences from their visits to New Zealand.

Land of geothermal areas, volcanoes and the Southern Alps, New Zealand is famed for its unusual birds including the national emblem of New Zealand, the Kiwi. One of the most isolated countries in the world and the last major land mass to be colonized by people, it is home to the M?ori people who began arriving in New Zealand about 1000 years ago.

The talk will be held on Monday, December 5 from 4-6pm at the Auburn Public Library. The public is welcome. The lecture series is free of charge. We encourage participants to wear masks. The Stanton Bird Club, a leader in environmental awareness, manages the Thorncrag Nature Sanctuary as well as the Woodbury Nature Sanctuary in Monmouth and Litchfield.

More information about other activities of the Club can be found at and on its Facebook page.
