Wednesday, September 4th at 7pm

In this program, our speaker will be PA Game Commission Furbearer Biologist Thomas Keller. Pennsylvania, once rich in wildlife diversity, suffered greatly during the last several centuries. Fortunately, the state has also seen historic comebacks of species through reintroduction and habitat development. Keller’s talk will explore the history of wildlife in Pennsylvania and introduces a new opportunity for continuing our legacy of rewilding with the American marten.
