The Clinton Land Trust is sponsoring a talk with author, historian, and naturalist Todd McLeish on Tuesday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. at the Henry Carter Hull Library in Clinton. He will be talking about the endangered species of New England. The event is free and open to everyone.
McLeish, the author of Encounters with New England’s Most Imperiled Wildlife, says he will discuss “the remarkable lives of the rarest and most endangered wildlife in New England, from birds and beetles to whales and sharks.”
He plans to take his audience along on an entertaining, first-person journey as he collects biopsy samples from humpback whales, gets attacked by marauding seabirds, observes the metamorphosis of rare dragonflies, and tracks the movements of the second-largest shark in the ocean. His talk is based on two books he has written.
