Mattapoisett Library October Travel Talk

Joy Marzolf of the Joys of Nature will return to the library on Sunday, October 9 at 2:00 pm for a Purrington Lecture Series presentation featuring the “The Wilds of Southern Belize.”

            Located in Eastern Central America, Belize shares borders with Guatemala and Mexico. From the crystal blue ocean waters and inland to the nearby mountains, it is amazingly diverse. Wildlife along the Southern coast and nearby rivers include magnificent tiger herons, fast flyers, like the cinnamon hummingbird and the peregrine falcon and large swimmers like manatees and crocodiles. Traveling inland to the rainforest brings sightings of spectacular butterflies, birds, like the black headed trogon, but also mammals like the elusive jaguar and bands of coatimundi. Join us for a virtual trip to see some of the stunning wildlife of Southern Belize. This will be an in-person presentation at the Mattapoisett Library.

            The Mattapoisett Library Trust supports this and other Purrington Lecture Series presentations. For more information about the Purrington Lecture Series, email to Check the library’s events calendar for more upcoming programs and book discussions.
