Vermont Mammals, Thursday May 27th at 7:00 pm

Kim Royer, Wildlife Biologist with Vermont Fish & Wildlife will discuss how the shift from forest to agricultural land in the 1800's affected the populations of furbearers such as wolves, fisher, bobcat and beaer and how the farm abandonment in the late 1800's to mid 1900's influenced bobcat, coyote and fox populations. Kim will have pelts and skulls from many Vermont mammals available to see and touch.

This program is part of a series that is created through a collaboration with the Springfield Town Library, The Nature Museum and Ascutney Mountain Audubon. It is partially funded by the Wellborn Ecology Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation. For more information please call the Nature Museum at 843-2111 or the library at 885-3108.
