Public Input Needed for CT Wildlife Action Plan

Tuesday, September 30, at 7 p.m.
At the deKoven House
27 Washington Street in Middletown

The Jonah Center for Earth and Art invites the public to a talk and slide presentation by Julie Victoria on her work to update the CT Wildlife Action Plan, including the need for public input and support.  Julie Victoria is a widely known and respected wildlife biologist who worked for the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP) for over 32 years, specializing in raptors, shorebirds, invertebrates, reptiles, and amphibians. Co-sponsors of the event are: Connecticut Forest & Park Association; Connecticut River Coastal Conservation District; Middlesex Community College Environmental Science Program; and the Middletown Resource Recycling Commission.

Participation by conservation partners, academic institutions, and the public is key to making the revised Wildlife Action Plan an effective tool for conserving Connecticut's diversity of wild species for future generations. Come to learn how you can make a difference. The overview presented at this talk will inform participants who may want to attend a facilitated workshop on November 6, to be hosted by the Connecticut Forest & Park Association at 16 Meriden Road, Rockfall CT 06481.

A $5 donation will be requested at the door to help cover program expenses
