Written on the Land: Connecticut’s Changing Forests
October 27, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Calling all lovers of history, animals, and Connecticut! Nora Hulton, a Connecticut Certified Master Wildlife Conservationist and teacher at Washington Montessori School, will deliver a visual presentation about Connecticut’s rich natural history at the New Milford Public Library on Saturday, October 27.
Nora’s amazing presentation will include a brief natural history of the state that describes how Connecticut’s land and wildlife have changed in response to historic events. Connecticut’s landscape has changed through the centuries, from almost all forest in the 1600s, to cleared land by the mid-1800s. From European settlement to the Revolutionary War to the Industrial Revolution to the fate of the Passenger Pigeon, history has shaped the landscape we see today. Nora will also cover the current state of our wildlife including a discussion of major species and their habitat needs, so bring your questions about your favorite Connecticut animals!
Questions and comments are welcome after the presentation. This event is great for kids, pelts and skulls will be on display and light refreshments will be served! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to register for this terrific event.
