The Coastal Mountains Land Trust‘s series of nature talks with the Camden Public Library continues with a colorful and exciting presentation by Roger Rittmaster, M.D.

He photographed over 800 species of insects, birds, mammals, and other wildlife, uploading the images to iNaturalist to share with other natural history enthusiasts. In this presentation, he will take you on a virtual tour of the places and creatures he photographed in this amazing area of the tropics.
