CT Agricultural Station biologist Scott Williams, Ph.D. returns to the library for a follow-up presentation on the wildlife that can be found on Connecticut’s shoreline and its impact on public health. He will be joined by Megan Linske, Ph.D. The goal of the presentation is to provide Guilford residents with the information we need to appreciate and understand our open spaces.

This is the fourth presentation of the Guilford Conservation Commission’s Living with Nature Speaker Series.

Dr. Williams’s and Dr. Linske’s presentations will have lots of trail cam pictures.  They will also be available to answer questions about some of the new wildlife species that are beginning to be in evidence in Guilford. Both Dr. Williams and Dr. Linske work at the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station in New Haven.

This program is sponsored jointly by the Guilford Conservation Commission, Guilford Land Conservation Trust and the Guilford Free Library.

The Guilford Conservation Commission is a Town Commission charged with the development, conservation, supervision and regulation of natural resources, including water resources, within the territorial limits of Guilford.  Commissioners are appointed by Board of Selectmen upon recommendation of Town Committee.

The Guilford Land Conservation Trust is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization that has been conserving natural resources in Guilford since 1965. To learn more, please see www.guilfordlandtrust.org.
