John Body @ Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary

John Body is exhibiting spectacular photos of birds and mammals at Mass Audubon’s Arcadia Wildlife Sanctuary, 127 Combs Rd., Easthampton. The exhibit runs from May 1st through May 31st. The photos mostly are of animals at Arcadia. John hopes that his photos will give a taste of this spectacular refuge and motivate you take a hike there.

Life abounds at Arcadia. From the ancient oxbow supporting the Ned’s Ditch Rookery to the expansive grassland habitats; from the floodplain forest of the Mill River to the cacophony of the vernal pools, this refuge protects a tremendous number of species.

Also through May, my blog will feature videos of the sanctuary and its wildlife. Please visit at This exhibit is dedicated to my dear friend Ann Kearns.
