Learn about animals and Connecticut’s changing landscape

The upcoming talk is free and open to the public

The Stratford Library continues its new season of “Sunday Afternoon Talks.”a monthly series of "informative and entertaining" events that will feature “Connecticut’s Changing Landscape and the Impact on Animals” at 2 p.m. March 13 at the library.
State Department of Environmental Protection representative Tom Guerin will be the guest speaker at the event, according to a statement.
“Sunday Afternoon Talks” events are free and open to the public.

The "Connecticut’s Changing Landscape and the Impact on Animals” will "take the audience back in time to illustrate how the Native Americans and then European colonists made use of the land and their impact on wildlife," the statement said.
"Present day land use and a discussion of current wildlife issues will then follow. Hands-on exploration of pelts, skulls and tracks will be included in the talk."
Guerin has been involved in the DEP Wildlife Division's "Master Wildlife Conservationist" program since its it began in 2002, the statement said. "The program is designed to train individuals already interested in wildlife issues to support Wildlife Division staff" and includes 40 classroom hours with DEP staff covering a range of wildlife topics and an annual time commitment by the volunteer, the statement said.

 Upcoming “Sunday Afternoon Talks” include horticulturalist Colleen Plimpton and historian Mark Albertson, the statement said. For more information call the library’s Public Relations & Programming Office at 203.385.4162 or visit its website at:
