Biologist to speak about beavers

FARMINGTON — Western Maine Audubon is sponsoring a talk on beavers Wednesday, April 11, at the University of Maine at Farmington Olsen Student Center in the North Dining Hall, at 7 p.m.

The speaker will be Chuck Hulsey of the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

The settlement of North American was largely done in pursuit of their pelts, and that feverish enterprise just about drove them to extinction. Their populations are again common and vigorous but the story of the comeback is quite remarkable. IF&W biologist Hulsey will lead participants through their story and natural history.
