"MooseMan"­ Illustrated Talk

  • Aug 29, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Proctor Academy Stone Chapel

 

On Thursday evening, August 29, beginning at 7:00  p.m., Andover’s own  MooseMan, Rick Libbey, will share his experiences as a wildlife photographer in  an illustrated talk in Proctor Academy’s Stone Chapel on the Village  Green. The talk is open to the public at  no charge.

A fulltime wildlife photographer since 2009, Libbey  traces his interest in camerawork back to 1981, when he visited a wilderness  lake in Maine with a little  Instamatic film camera. Unsatisfied with  the results, he moved on to more sophisticated gear. “But looking back,” he says, “I know the gear  wasn’t the important part. It was the  passion that developed within me for just being out in the bush country with all  the wildlife, but in particular with moose.

“By the summer of 2003,” he  continues, “it became clear to me that I had found my true calling. Simply said,  it's to be ‘in the company of moose.’ It is what I am supposed to be doing.” 

Libbey’s work was featured on the cover of the spring  2013 issue of Kearsarge  Magazine. Samples of his work and  items for sale can be found at www.moosemannaturephotos.com.

Goal of the  presentation, according to Mary Anne Broshek, conservation commission chair, is  to help local residents better understand what they can do to make their  properties more attractive to wildlife, and why such action is important.

The talk is one in a series of the conservation  commission's summer-long “Taking Action for  Wildlife” project, which has been guided by the New Hampshire Fish and Game  Department and the University of  New Hampshire Cooperative Extension.  You can learn more about the state program and view local wildlife maps at http://www.wildlife.state.nh.us/Wildlife/wildlife_plan.htm,  or http://extension.unh.edu/fwt/tafw/index.htm
