Nature is full of surprises! Deciduous trees affect the rotation of the Earth, cranes sabotage the production of Iberian ham, and coniferous forests can make it rain.
But what are the processes that drive these incredible phenomena? And why do they matter? This series will examine the various ways we all affect life around us.
This month, look at the world of mammals as special guest, Will Pryor from the Wolf Mountain Nature Center in Smyrna NY, joins us for a discussion of wolves and man. Pryor started the center 13 years ago with a mission to foster appreciation and understanding of the intrinsic value of wolves, coyotes and their cousins and their relationship with natural systems and man. His goal is to provide unique and interesting environmental educational programs and deliver them to a diverse audience.
Our guiding text is Wolves at Our Door: The Extraordinary Story of the Couple Who Lived with Wolves by Jim and Jamie Dutcher. Registration is recommended. Books are available at the library.
