"We invited Mark to present his talk on the Chesapeake and coastal bays of Maryland as part of out Nature Matter series at Meadowside Nature Center in Rockville, MD. Our highly discerning audience really enjoyed Mark's pictorial journey of the watershed. He provided a thought-provoking story - full of beautiful images, hard science, and obvious affection for the place."

""Natural Wonders of Assateague" allowed participants to discover the flora and fauna of Assateague and experience the island beyond the vacation and off the beaten path.  Through the unique perspective of Mark’s lens his imagery led us on a journey of the island's diverse inhabitants from the elusive to the most famous.  Not only were Mark's photographs inspiring and artistic, but they were accompanied by his extensive and accurate knowledge of the natural history of the island.  Mark's presentation was educational, entertaining, and funny and his passion for wildlife and conservation is contagious."
