Bushy Tails and Chubby Cheeks: Squirrels and Chipmunks in Our Midst

Date: March 1, 2023
Time: 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Location: Online Webinar

Mosaic of animals featured in nature lecture series.Cute and cuddly or invasive pests? Actually Squirrels and Chipmunks play an important role helping to shape the plant composition of our ecosystem. By burying their main source of nutrients, seeds, throughout the environment, they effectively influence the number and distribution of different plant species. But they also are drawn to human-provided resources like bird seed and often create nests around our homes.

This free webinar will look at the balance of their lives and their overall effect on nature and humans. State-certified Master Wildlife Conservationist Ginny Apple will lead our discussion with time for your questions. Ginny has hiked, climbed, kayaked, skied, and poked her way through the outdoors and developed a passion for all things natural around her home within Peoples State Forest in Barkhamsted.

You may participate on any device with a web browser and email access. Please register in advance with our co-sponsor, Bloomfield Parks, Recreation & Leisure Services. A link to login will be sent to your email after you register.
