Canceled: North American Birds of Prey

Wednesday May 4, 2016
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED: Birds of prey, or raptors (from the Lawingmasterstin for “to seize”), are hunting birds with hooked beaks and powerful grabbing feet armed with sharp talons. These birds—among them eagles, hawks, falcons and owls—also boast the best eyesight and the sharpest hearing in the animal kingdom. This presentation, with five live birds, by Wingmasters, will explain raptor predation, their place at the top of the food web, their different hunting adaptations and their status in a rapidly changing world. Come see featured species of endangered raptors and learn about why they face an uncertain future.

This event will be held at the Milford Town Hall banquet room. Please use the entrance on Middle Street and take the elevator to the 3rd floor.

Becoming Wolf: Coyotes in Eastern New England

Thursday April 21, 2016
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM at Milford Town Hall

The proggreatsquamram focuses on the eastern coyote’s ecology and behavior and how hunting may actually be a more rapid evolution toward wolf!

Beginning in the early 1990’s, Chris Schadler taught Conservation Issues, Dendrology and Wolf Ecology at the University of New Hampshire, receiving many teaching excellence and student recognition awards.  She continues to instruct and mentor adult degree candidates in the UNH System at Granite State College.

While wolf recovery was the focus of her early work, Chris’ attention shifted to the Eastern coyote when she moved to New England.  She chose a farm with coyote problems to see if she could raise sheep and train her border collies.  Using sound livestock management and common sense, she avoided any predation for over two decades.

Location: Milford Town Hall Banquet Room. Please use the entrance on Middle Street and take the elevator to the 3rd floor.
