Animals of the North: What will Global Climate Change Mean for Them?

Date: 
Thursday, August 31, 2017 -
7:00pm to 8:30pm
Location: 
Memorial Hall, 14 West Main Street, Wilmington, Vermont 05363

This program is designed to educate audiences about ways in which northern wildlife species are already being affected by climate change, with more serious challenges ahead.  Canada lynx, moose, American marten, caribou, polar bear, arctic fox and arctic marine mammals and waterfowl are some of the species covered in this stunningly beautiful show.  We promise not to overwhelm our audience with bad news.  Instead, our program will devote equal time to sharing remarkable images and stories about plants and animals in their northern habitats - - all in the spirit of Jane Goodall’s “reason for hope.” Our intent is to inspire our attendees, young and old alike, to join us in the vital crusade to change our fossil fuel-burning ways, conserve natural resources and share a healthy planet with all that lives.

Along with Pettee Memorial Library, this presentation is being co-hosted by the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum.

This program is free and open to the public, but donations to Pettee Memorial Library are always welcome.  For more information please contact Allison Maynard at (802)464-8557 or www.petteelibrary.org.
