CANAAN — The David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village, Canaan, will host a Zoom event about Connecticut’s American eagle population with Master Conservationist Ginny Apple on Saturday, March 20, at 2 p.m.
Bald eagles were once so endangered that many considered whether to replace them as America’s national symbol, a library announcement said. The ongoing story of their recovery as a species, nationally and in Connecticut, is a comeback story. Ginny Apple, a Master Wildlife Conservationist, will present a talk and slide presentation about these birds of prey and their contributions to the ecosystem. Register at HuntLibrary.org, on the library’s Facebook page or by calling 860-824-7424.
Apple is a resident of Barkhamsted and is a Master Wildlife Conservationist with the State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Her house is within Peoples State Forest where she observes a large population of black bears, supplying field notes and photographs of them to DEEP biologists.
