Vermonters of all ages are invited to attend presentations about Vermont’s wildlife in a changing climate, featuring state Fish & Wildlife biologist Tom Rogers.
The first date to hear Rogers is Monday, May 7, at 7 p.m. as part of the annual meeting of the Jericho Underhill Land Trust at the Community Center, 329 Browns Trace Road, Jericho Center. The next occasion is Tuesday, May 15, at 7 p.m. at Middlebury’s Ilsley Public Library at 75 Main St., and organized by Vermont Coverts.
Rogers is a biologist who works in outreach for the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department. Rogers will talk about what people can do to help conserve biodiversity in Vermont in the face of new threats posed to wildlife from a changing climate.
“From warmer, wetter winters to increasingly severe storms, wildlife faces a variety of challenges from a changing climate,” said Rogers. “We’ll discuss how different species might continue to respond to many of these challenges and what conservationists are doing to address them.”
