Nature with Ranger Russ
Taking over the mic on his day off, Ranger Russ from the Meigs Point Nature Center at the Hammonasset Beach State Park comes in to offer insights on how we can truly enjoy..protect..and help our neighbor creatures and area landscape. Guests come in to talk about environmental protection...re-nesting birds of prey...photographing animals...volunteering...native gardens and so much more.
Nature Folk: Wildlife or Wild Myth?
Naturalist Ranger Russ from Meigs Point Nature Center teams up with noted folklorist Professor Stephen Gencarella from UMass/Amherst to share perspective on the creatures and characters that might have been part of our natural world centuries ago....and the stories attached to them! What is a Whapperknocker? What are the truths about the last gray wolf in Connecticut...how about that frog war in Windham...we dissect the story and share from both the nature side and the folklore side what might be true...and where the fantastical may take over...and why!
