June 25th at 7pm – Rescue and Rehabilitation of Sea Turtles

From early November through the end of December, young sea turtles are stranded along north facing beaches of Cape Cod. These “Cold stunned” turtles are near death and suffer from pneumonia, as well as injuries to their bodies, or both.

This program follows photographer Bob Michelson, who was contracted by NOAA National Marine Fisheries service to document the entire process, from rescuing sea turtles along Cape Cod beaches through their medical care and rehabilitation at the New England Aquarium (NEAq) sea turtle facility in Quincy, to their release back into the environment. Exclusive underwater photos of turtles in the NEAq Giant Ocean Tank are included in this presentation”.

June 18th at 7pm – Sharks to Parks with Bob Michelson

“Sharks To Parks” begins with a presentation on predator/prey relationships using our mounted 7 1/2 foot long gold hammerhead shark named Bruce (yes, a real shark we caught fishing off of Florida 40 years).  We then segue into a photography-based presentation showing all of the animals, both on land and underwater that live in and around the parks of Kingston. These include White tail deer, coyote, red fox, groundhog, chipmunk, cottontail rabbit, gray squirrel, etc. Underwater photos show Striped bass, Flounder, River herring, Rainbow smelt, Large and Smallmouth bass, pumpkinseed, bluegill, chain pickerel, yellow perch, etc.”
