Lyme - Illustrator Patrick Lynch will present a talk about New England's coastline and the challenges facing it, from urbanization and pollution to climate change, during the Annual Meeting of the Lyme Land Conservation Trust at 6 p.m. June 13 at the Lyme Public Hall, 249 Hamburg Road (Route 156).

Using images of his illustrations, Lynch will focus on the geology and biology of the coast, and place current challenges within the context of 20,000 years of major changes in the shoreline since it was formed at the end of the Ice Age.

Lynch is a widely recognized artist, author, designer and photographer. He has received more than 40 national and international awards and honors, including a 2012 National Outdoor Book Award for "A Field Guide to the Southeast Coast & Gulf of Mexico."

His "Manual of Ornithology," co-authored with Noble S. Proctor, won several national awards for editorial and design excellence, and is one of the most widely used texts in undergraduate and graduate ornithology courses. His most recent book, "Connecticut Coast & Long Island Sound," has been released as an e-book for the Apple iPad.

After the presentation, refreshments will be served and there will be a brief business meeting of the land trust.
