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

Date: 
Tuesday, August 15, 2017 -
7:00pm to 8:30pm
Location: 
Red Barn, MeadowWind Bed and Breakfast, 41 North Shore Road, Hebron, New Hampshire

This slide presentation 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.

There will also be two half-day field workshops in the Hebron, NH area with a New Hampshire Audubon trail leader serving Sue Morse as guide.  Sue will teach participants about how to locate and identify wildlife tracks and sign, as well as speak about the ecology of the wildlife habitat in the Hebron region.  Participants my sign up for a half-day or full-day program.  The maximum number for each half-day field workshop will be 20 people.  To sign up for the workshops, and get more information about both the workshops and slide presentation, contact Kelly Dwyer, Director of Environmental Education, at kdwyer@nhaudubon.org or Ian Cullison, the seasonal director, at newfoundaud@nhaudubon.org.
