Sue Morse: Animals of the North
Monday, September 7; afternoon field visit and/or evening program
A half day-day field outing at our Ely Mountain Conservation Area and an evening program at Martha Jane Rich Auditorium at Thetford Academy. The evening program is designed to educate audiences about ways in which northern wildlife species are already being affected by climate change, with more serious challenges ahead. Canada lynx, moose, American marten, caribou, polar bears, arctic fox and arctic marine and waterfowl ecology are some of the species and subjects covered in this stunningly beautiful show. Sue promises not to overwhelm our audience with bad news. Instead, her program will devote equal time sharing remarkable images of animals and their northern habitats-all in the spirit of Jane Goodall’s “reason for hope.” The intent is to inspire attendees, young and old alike, to join in the vital crusade to change our fossil fuel-burning ways, conserve natural resources and share a healthy planet with all that lives. The evening program is open and free to the public. To learn more about the field outing contact Jason.Berard (at)
