Guest Seminar: Moose on the Loose!

May 13, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

It is unclear whether moose ever historically occurred in Connecticut, but they sure do now! Moose have been gradually colonizing Connecticut from neighboring Massachusetts over the past few decades, with the first confirmed evidence of reproduction in the state occurring as recently as 2000. A small population has since become established, mainly in towns bordering Massachusetts. Join us for a talk by Andrew LaBonte, Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection moose and deer biologist, about the history and status of moose in Connecticut, and future expectations for the species in our state. Discover where you might be able to catch a glimpse of this illusive and rare animal in Connecticut, and what you should do if you’re lucky enough to see one! And if you’re wondering what on Earth is going on in this photo, Andrew says you’ll just have to come to the talk to find out!

Free for members; a suggested donation of $5 per person for non-members is greatly appreciated.
