More about the presentation:
Dr. Tom French will give a lively account of the early settlement of Massachusetts and how the public’s attitude towards wildlife has dramatically changed over time. It took the loss of most of our forests and large wildlife to raise public concern but recently many of our large animals have returned. Our native species continue to be threatened by ever-expanding development but there are many success stories to be proud of!
