On Saturday, October 30 at 2PM, the David M. Hunt Library in Falls Village will host a Zoom presentation focusing on the history of the fisher, or fisher cat, in Connecticut. Ginny Apple, Master Wildlife Conservationist with the CT DEEP, will provide an overview of the fisher’s habitat, diet, behavior, and reproduction. Practical recommendations for optimum coexistence with the fisher population will be discussed and fisher artifacts will be presented to the audience. Attendees can register at HuntLibrary.org, on the Library’s Facebook page, or by calling the library at 860-824-7424.
Ginny Apple is a resident of Barkhamsted and is a Master Wildlife Conservationist with the State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Her house is within Peoples State Forest where she observes a large population of Black Bears, supplying field notes and photographs of them to DEEP biologists. As an MWC she also serves as a Bald Eagle interpreter for the Shepaug Dam Eagle Viewing area and the Essex Steam Train’s Eagle Flyer. Just to keep her creative juices percolating, Ginny has a side business, Murder Without Pain, where she writes murder mystery games based on historical subjects and runs them at country inns, corporate parties, and fundraisers.
