Eagle Talk with Ginny Apple, Thursday, March 4th, 7:00 PM
It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane—no, it’s an eagle!! Bald eagles were once so endangered that many considered whether to replace them as America’s national symbol. The ongoing story of their recovery as a species and CT’s healthy eagle population is a comeback story worth hearing. Join Ginny Apple, a Master Wildlife Conservationist with the State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, for a talk about these magnificent birds of prey that so fascinate onlookers and their valuable contributions to our ecosystem. Ginny Apple will discuss and give a slide show presentation on the bald eagle and its resurging population in Connecticut.
