Island Life: The Ecology of Our Barrier Islands

Thursday, Mar. 5, 2015, 7:00 pm
Island Life: The Ecology of Our Barrier Islands;

Education/Lectures

Old Lyme Town Hall, 52 Lyme St., Old Lyme, CT , 06371

Guest Speaker: Biologist Kris Vagos and Shaun Roche of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Naturalist Corrie Folsom-O'Keefe of Audubon Connecticut
Connecticut's shoreline is one of the most developed places on the east coast, but there are still a few natural areas that remain where specific wildlife thrive. Charismatic bird species like great egrets, American oystercatchers, and glossy ibis return to Connecticut's undeveloped barrier islands to nest and raise their young. Nearby marshes and mudflats teem with fish, shellfish, snails and other life to help maintain the delicate balance of our estuary.

Join us as we explore the natural history of this unique habitat through an interactive presentation followed by Q&A.

Founded in 1994 in Hartford, Connecticut, the CWHF fills the void that traditional curricula still fail to address and today stands as the state's premier source for women's history with 109 Inductees. Through a wide spectrum of innovative statewide programs offered free of charge to Connecticut citizens, the CWHF celebrates and documents its Inductees' lives and accomplishments and now reaches more than 30,000 women and girls annually. Historically, the CWHF website has been a learning tool attracting international, national and local researchers, teachers and students.
