She regularly conducts lectures at Johns Hopkins University and conducts seminars for other educational institutions, retirement communities, and bird and photo clubs including the New England Council of Camera Clubs.
She is also a volunteer at Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, where many of her images are on display. Her nationally distributed book, “Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, an Ecological Treasure,” will be available for sale at this program, and a book signing will follow her talk.
