11th Annual Adirondack Habitat Awareness Day
The 11th Annual Adirondack Habitat Awareness Day will be celebrated at the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge at 977 Springfield Road in Wilmington, on Sunday September 2nd, from 10 am to 6 pm. The Theme this year will be the ongoing challenges Adirondack Wildlife face in a changing climate. We will be discussing the following topics at the wolf, coyote and bear enclosures throughout the day:
Which non-native animals are increasingly spending seasons in the Adirondacks?
Which tick species are increasing, who do they impact, and which animals eat ticks?
Should we control the deer & rodent populations, and if so, how?
Should we control coyotes, or is hunting them counterproductive?
Are coydogs really “coydogs”? What kind of wolves live in the Adirondacks, and what is the modern history of wolves in the Adirondacks?
Why are black bears "indicator species", and what do they tell us about their environment?
In addition, there will be two dedicated presentations at the Adirondack Wildlife Education Center:
4 PM: How do Rising temperatures & Extreme weather affect ADK Wildlife?
5 PM: How to become a Wildlife Rehabber
As always, your family and friends will meet critters from fox to bobcat, fisher possum and porcupine, and birds of prey from eagles to any hawk, owl or falcon found in the Adirondacks. They’ll also learn all about what role these animals play in the Adirondacks, what impact they have on their environments, including other species and us.
Adirondack Wildlife Inc is a 501C3 non-profit, which funds the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge LLC, a Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, which in turn performs Rescue, Rehab and Release, for hundreds of injured and ill Adirondack critters every year. There will be refreshments, entertainment, special kiddy tours and a silent auction. Any donations to the non-profit will be greatly appreciated, and will go to rehabbing and releasing wild animals.
