Gene Huggins, Naomi Roper, and Andrew Roper
Great Britain’s Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) Photographer of the Year Naomi Roper of Sunderland, England, is visiting Webster today as part of her week-long visit to New York State. Roper’s photo of an African comb duck taken at a WWT wetlands nature center won the trip sponsored by New York State’s Division of Tourism, Continental Airlines, and the Great Lakes Seaway Trail National Scenic Byway.

Yesterday incoming Onondaga Audubon Society President Gene Huggins welcomed Naomi and her husband Andrew Roper to Derby Hill Bird Observatory located west of Oswego, NY. Andrew and Naomi are holding the Birding the Great Lakes Seaway Trail field guide and brochure.

The Ropers are visiting Alexandria Bay, Oswego, Webster and Niagara Falls, NY, and visiting natural and scenic areas attractions including the Great Lakes Seaway Trail Discovery Center in Sackets Harbor, Derby Hill, the Braddock Bay Bird Observatory west of Rochester, and Niagara Falls.

At the announcement of Roper’s award, New York State Division of Tourism European PR Coordinator David Gale said, “Sparkling waters, nature centers, walking trails, and birds galore across four seasons make the 833.6km (518-mile) Great Lakes Seaway Trail a spectacular natural touring destination.”
