Wed, April 15th 2020
Over his 39 year career with the American Museum of Natural History, long time Bergen County Audubon Society member, Stephen Quinn, has sailed on many museum expeditions and observed seabirds in their natural ocean habitats. Quinn’s talk will focus on their worldwide distribution, unique adaptations and physiology. He will illustrate his presentation with museum study skins of a few of the seabirds that members might expect to see off New Jersey’s coast.
Stephen Quinn worked in the Museum’s Exhibition Department as an artist and exhibit designer and fabricator. His work included the collection of specimens and references for display in the museum’s famous dioramas. Though retired, Quinn continues to pursue his art, which focuses on wildlife and ecological subjects.
