Click to hide meeting description

While we would love to see you back at the Aquarium (we will be in the Cafe in the main building) we will also be doing this program on Zoom, so if you cannot come into Boston in person, please join us online (pre-registration required for Zoom by 4:30pm at www.neadc.org)

Marine mammal watching in Southern Baja Sur is full of drama! Humpback whales demonstrate their gymnastic abilities as they launch themselves into the air in the Southern Gulf of California. In the winter and spring, whale calves can be seen with their mothers as they explore sheltered bays. Gray whales on the Pacific side willingly approach people, seeing to allow visitor to babysit their calves. Dramatic wildlife scenes near Loreto include massive fin whales rising out of the depths for air, and blue footed boobies plunging into the ocean for fish. In La Paz, visitors can swim with friendly California sea lions as they chase fish, and each other. But Baja is not just a place for marine mammals! It is the home of the biggest fish in the sea. Whale sharks, seasonally visit the waters near La Paz where snorkelers can see these amazing bus-sized fish up close. Baja is truly a land of marine giants, and so much more just south of the border.

Elections will also be held at the November Meeting

Joy has loved animals from the time since she was a child growing up in New England and would always take advantage of any outdoor time to explore nature. Now, she still loves to explore, but also to share her knowledge about wildlife and nature in general. In addition to a BA in Biology, she has been doing a variety of animal-related education programs in her professional life for over 20 years. One of her favorite things to do is break people’s misconceptions about many animals, especially those that people fear, such as predators including sharks, reptiles and spiders. In addition to her live animal programs with her company The Joys of Nature (thejoysofnature.com) she is also a trip leader and naturalist for marine related trips for the Oceanic Society.

Officer meeting

First Wednesday of every month
Location: Varies

Every month there is also a meeting where the officers discuss club issues. It is held at a different place each month, usually at a member's house, restaurant or other informal setting.

It is open to the membership, and is the perfect opportunity to bring up issues directly to the board. if you would like to attend, ask an officer and they'll let you know the location for that month.
