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

Date: 
Thursday, October 5, 2017 -
1:30pm to 3:00pm
Location: 
Richmond Free Library Community Room, 201 Bridge Street, Richmond, Vermont 05477

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.

The Community Senior Center of Richmond, Huntington and Bolton, Vermont describes their organization as a “hub”-- a clearinghouse for volunteering, enrichment opportunities and community involvement.  While their goal is to provide these services to elders living in the Richmond, Huntington and Bolton, Vermont area, they welcome people of all ages and locations to attend programs, such as the Animals of the North program.  Keeping Track is delighted to be in partnership with The Community Senior Center and applaud their mission to work with local businesses and non-profit organizations whose missions align with theirs, for the mutual benefit of all.

Note that this presentation is during the day, with the hope that this will make attendance easier for more people.  To learn more about The Community Senior Center, check out www.cscvt.org/about-us.html.  Questions can be directed to Martha Nye at (802)434-3220, (802)503-8155 or martha3@gmavt.net.  Martha says that The Community Senior Center hopes that Senior Center members would become interested in Keeping Track volunteer opportunities, a suggestion that Keeping Track greatly appreciates.  Sue Morse will be sure to explain some volunteer opportunities during a discussion after the program.  Also, don’t hesitate to contact us at info@keepingtrack.org or (802)434-7000.
 
The Animals of the North presentation is free and open to the public – all ages and from any location.  We look forward to this local collaborative event!
