Problems and Solutions
The Orange Land Trust would like to invite you to our Annual Meeting, to be held Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018, High Plains Community Center, Orange Center Road at 7 pm. Following a short business meeting, our program for the evening features a visit from Chris Vann, a nuisance wildlife biologist who just may have the answers to “critter issues” you may be struggling with around your home and property.
Chris is a nuisance wildlife biologist with the CT DEEP Technical Assistance Program, Wildlife Division. This presentation on common wildlife, problems and solutions, will provide an interesting and informative look at what you need to know and what measures you can take yourself. We will learn about squirrels, raccoons, foxes, coyotes, deer, and other wildlife that can become a problem when they take up residence in, or just visit, populated areas. There are many other wildlife species that may cause conflicts, but for homeowners these species are among those most frequently complained about.
He will also discuss raccoon and bat rabies and rabies response guidelines. As the Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator (NWCO) Program Biologist he will provide info on this thirty-year old program and its operation.
All animals require our respect. We will learn the 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.
