Bobcats in our Backyard!

We are welcoming back one of our favorite wildlife biologists, Melissa Ruszczyk, from the State of CT DEEP Wildlife Division who will share information about the work that is being done within our state regarding bobcats. “As top predators, it is important to monitor their population because their presence affects many other species including competing predators, prey species, and animals in direct competition with prey” -Brandon Bernhardt, CT DEEP Wildlife Division.
