The Orange Land Trust would like to invite you to our Annual Meeting, to be held Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017, High Plains Community Center, Orange Center Road at 7 pm. Following a short business meeting, our program for the evening features a visit from Geoffrey Krukar, wildlife biologist with the CT DEEP Furbearer Program.
Is Orange becoming Where the Wild Things Are? This presentation on the return of the coyote to our region will provide an interesting and informative look at what you need to know. We will learn about this and other wildlife that were once thought to inhabit only the rural back country and deep woods, far from populated areas.
Geoffrey Krukar, a wildlife biologist with the CT DEEP Furbearer Program, will be presenting his program on the Eastern Coyote in Connecticut. He will discuss coyote natural history, how they came to be in our state and where they can be found. He will also highlight sources of coyote nuisance and management options available to towns, including what measures you can take yourself.
This is a predatory animal that requires our respect. There are some basic precautions that could be taken to avoid or minimize what could possibly become a dangerous or tragic situation.
We are anticipating an informative and educational evening for everyone. Plan to join us. This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
