Eagles in Connecticut: Return of an Icon Eagles in Connecticut: Return of an Icon
Canton Public Library
Tuesday, Jun. 13, 7:00 PM


Bald eagles were once in such dire trouble that people discussed what should replace them as America’s national symbol. The ongoing story of their recovery as a species in Connecticut will be the subject of a talk by wildlife biologist, Brian Hess, on Tuesday, June 13, at 7:00 p.m. at the Canton Public Library. With accompanying projected images, Mr. Hess will explain eagle biology and the story of their perilous population decline and subsequent recovery, as well as what is being done to conserve their populations for future generations.
 
Brian Hess is a wildlife biologist with the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Mr. Hess studied wildlife conservation as an undergraduate at the University of Delaware and received his M.S. from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.  He has worked with California condors, greater prairie-chickens, mottled ducks, and shorebirds before starting with DEEP in 2014. The Wildlife Division’s Wildlife Diversity Program conserves non-game wildlife.  As part of that group, Brian works to monitor and conserve large raptors, reptiles, and amphibians.
