Chris is a nuisance wildlife biologist with the CT DEEP Technical Assistance Program, Wildlife Division. This presentation on common wildlife, problems, and solutions, will provide an interesting and informative look at what you need to know and what measures you can take yourself. You will learn about squirrels, raccoons, foxes, coyotes, deer, and other wildlife that can become a problem when they take up residence in, or just visit, populated areas.
There are many other wildlife species that may cause conflicts, but for homeowners, these species are among those most frequently complained about.
He also discusses raccoon and bat rabies and rabies response guidelines. As the Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator (NWCO) Program Biologist he will provide info on this thirty-
year-old program and its operation.
All animals require our respect. We will learn the basic precautions that could be taken to avoid or minimize what could possibly become a dangerous or tragic situation.
The Land Trust is anticipating an informative and educational evening for everyone. Plan to join them.
This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
