The native turkeys we currently see in such abundance were extirpated from Massachusetts not so long ago. Their revival is a true success story, unless you’ve tangled with an aggressive one. Join Newton Conservator’s Barbara Bates as she explores the habits and natural & cultural history of this interesting bird, including “pecking order” and how it survives so well in our cities.

For more than 16 years, Barbara Bates was a teacher naturalist for Mass Audubon’s Habitat Education Center & Wildlife Sanctuary in Belmont, MA. Before the pandemic, she led guided nature walks for all ages on a variety of subjects and presented programs at several Continuing Care Retirement Communities and Senior Centers.  She currently serves on the Board of the Newton Conservators. Barbara has retired several times – first from a long career in the high-tech world and more recently from teaching negotiation and conflict resolution as an adjunct faculty member at Northeastern University.  She loves all things nature.
