Moose, Marten, and More – how a changing climate might affect northern wildlife
Join the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests and Doug Morin, Wildlife Biologist with Vermont Fish and Wildlife, for a presentation on “Moose, Marten, and More – how a changing climate might affect northern wildlife” at Bretzfelder Park in Bethlehem on February 27, 2019 at 7 p.m. The free program is part of the annual winter Bretzfelder Park Family Educational Series. It is open to the public and will begin at 7 p.m. Morin will provide an overview of some of the region's northern wildlife including moose, American marten, and boreal birds. He will discuss how their different adaptations may lead to different futures for these iconic animals in the face of a changing climate, land use patterns, and other human impacts. Morin is a Wildlife Biologist with the Department of Fish and Wildlife, covering the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. He holds an M.S. in Natural Resources from the University of Vermont, but grew up in New Hampshire and still spends much of his time exploring the Granite State.
The free program is open to the public and is part of the annual winter Bretzfelder Park Family Educational Series. It will begin at 7 p.m. at Bretzfelder Park. Pre-registration is not required.
