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!

On the show

A naturalist and a folklorist re-visit the writings from the late 18th century on what our state may have looked like in these early years…and what animals shared our landscape…like “the humility!!!!”
