About the presenter
Nora Hulton, Connecticut Certified Master Wildlife Conservationist and teacher at Washington Montessori School, has a degree in Agriculture and Natural Resources from SUNY Cobleskill and has owned and operated her own garden center for over 20 years in Cornwall Bridge. She is an avid hiker and outdoorswoman, and resides in Warren, where she is a member of her town’s Inland Wetlands Commission. Her ancestry in Litchfield County goes back over 125 years, and she is passionate about learning and sharing information on the natural history of the area.
Connecticut’s landscape has changed throughout the centuries, from vast forest in the 1600's, to almost all cleared land by the mid-1800's. As the landscape has changed, so have the wildlife populations that depend it. Join Nora as she describes the history of Connecticut’s landscape and the impact that colonization has had on wildlife populations. Come and discover our current state of wildlife, factors affecting their habitats, challenges that we face in managing them, and learn what we can do to make a difference. Nora will also be bringing several animal pelts and skulls for participants to view.
