Kenn and Kimberly Kaufman

Most people probably would tell you that the New England region was discovered long ago.  And it was - but that doesn’t mean that the age of discovery is over.  Once you begin to pay attention to the world of nature, New England offers astonishing surprises around every corner.  From the wild forests and marshes to the farms and towns, and even in the cities, wild animals and plants can be found in amazing diversity.  Kenn and Kimberly Kaufman learned that for themselves when they set out to research their new guide to New England natural history.  In this program they will describe some of their favorite adventures, share some of their favorite photos, and talk about the endless potential for everyone to make personal discoveries about nature.

The Kaufmans will also be available to sign their Field Guide to Nature of New England, to be released in October 2012.

KENN KAUFMAN, originator of the Kaufman Field Guide series, is one of the world’s foremost naturalists.

KIMBERLY KAUFMAN is the executive director of Ohio’s Black Swamp Bird Observatory and a contributing editor to Birds & Blooms.
