Wildlife and Pizza!

Is that bear eating going to eat your birdseed? While you enjoy eating free pizza, find out what bears like to eat. Also, discover what kinds of tracks those are by the back door and where to look for your wild neighbors. On Wednesday, November 19 at 6:00 local expert, wildlife biologist Trina Moruzziwill be at the Wheeler Memorial Library in Orange to let you know how best to live with the wild animals in your backyard.

Trina lives in Orange and works at the MA Division of Fisheries and Wildlife providing public outreach on wildlife issues, and assisting on waterfowl, deer, bear and furbearer projects. On November 19 Trina will share her knowledge about different critters that inhabit your neighborhood, from skunks to coyotes and bears. Participants of all ages will discover some of the dos and don’ts on living with these species and how they prepare for winter. A wildlife track activity will follow.

A celebration of Family Literacy Month, this event is free and open to the public thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the Orange Libraries. But please call by November 17th to pre-register so there will be enough pizza for all to share before the presentation. All ages are welcome. Questions? Call Children’s Librarian Candy Cross at 544-2495, extension 103.
