The Conservation Association Committee of the CCCA (Cavendish Community and Conservation Association) will be holding it's first in a series of presentations on wildlife in Cavendish on Thursday, April 7th in the Town Office meeting room. Community members are encouraged to help us gain a better understanding of the various kinds of wildlife they have seen and where they have been seen them. Jens Hilke of the State Fish and Wildlife Department is working with us to begin building a database of where various species have been seen and we will have a large map of Cavendish that individuals can use to specifically note location of sightings. We will end the evening with a presentation by State Wildlife Biologist Jane Lazorchak on Bobcats in Vermont. The State currently has wildlife grant funding to focus on bobcat habitat identification including key crossing areas, in order to prioritize areas for conservation. So, bring your stories and your wildlife photos and we look forward to seeing you on the 7th! Refreshments will be served. For more information call Robin Timko at 226-7736.
