The Balance Between Wildlife Conservation and Making a Life in a Rural State will be the subject of a discussion led by Eric Hanson at the Jeudevine Memorial Library on Wed. August  2nd at 7 PM at the Jeudevine Memorial Library.  What was Vermont’s wildlife and vegetation like 400 years ago?  The state has undergone drastic changes in our landscape since then and wildlife populations have been affected along the way.  As a follow-up discussion to the book discussion from July 19, When the Killings Done by T.C. Boyle, we will explore the impacts of human activity on Vermont’s wildlife populations and the tradeoffs we make in balancing the needs between people and wildlife.
