With practical guidance, helpful tips, and informative overviews of each location, The Wildlife of New England, by John S. Burk invites you to discover more than 80 wildlife-viewing areas around New England.

  • Where are you most likely to spot a moose, black bear, or otter in the wild?
  • On what hilltop can you see thousands of migrating hawks in a single day?
  • Where might you see a basking shark, seal, or sea star?

Experienced nature writer and photographer John S. Burk answers these questions and more in this unique guidebook. Organized by state, each viewing location is discussed in detail, including its natural habitats and their unique features, characteristic species to watch for and when to see them, and recommended trails, auto roads, and driving directions. The Wildlife of New England also offers informative introductions to 60 of the region's iconic animals organized by their natural habitats and shown in stunning photographs, many in color. The book is available at Harvard Forest and through the University of New Hampshire Press.
