Nature Talk: Wildlife History of New York


Wave Hill House

Over a century of human settlement and development have brought many changes to the Hudson Valley, as well as to the wildlife in the region. Environmental Educator Megan Hoffman from the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum highlights five native animals whose natural histories have been significantly impacted by human activity. A closer look at the sturgeon, beaver, box turtle, coyote and bald eagle illustrates how pollutants, habitat loss and preservation, over-hunting and other human interventions have affected their populations over time. Ages 10 and older welcome with an adult.

Free with admission to the grounds.
