Moose in Connecticut – EHLS Ongoing Nature Program Series

Moose in Connecticut? Yep! In fact, several years ago a moose was spotted in Ellington, Tolland, Bolton, Hebron, Marlborough, Colchester and East Haddam. It was likely the same moose, according to wildlife biologist Andrew LaBonte.

Andrew M. LaBonte is a wildlife biologist with the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, Wildlife Division. He is certified as a wildlife biologist through The Wildlife Society. He received a B.S. in wildlife biology from Unity College, Unity, Maine, and an M.S. degree in Wildlife Management at the University of Connecticut. His research includes moose populations in the State, and he presents interesting programs to the public on the topic. He will be presenting a program sponsored by the East Haddam Library System, to be held at the East Haddam Grange Hall, Friday May 26th at 6:30 pm. Light refreshments 6:00-6:30.

So where are the moose coming from, and why? Will more be arriving in Connecticut? What should we do if we see one? These are some of the questions that will be answered by Mr. LaBonte at this program.

Over the past year or so, we have presented programs at the Hall about black bears and bobcats in Connecticut. Join us for the next event in this ongoing series. Come to the Grange Hall for a discussion of how to coexist with moose, the largest member of the deer family, and prevent conflict while learning about their history. Or should I say “moosetory”?

This is a FREE EVENT! Age 12+ please.
