Hidden Stories: Looking into the Lives of our Wild Neighbors
August 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree Online
Presented live via Zoom with time for Q&A. Pre-registration is required.
What do wild animals do every day? Many of us have no idea. There are stories hidden in the natural communities around us waiting to be discovered. Squam Lakes Natural Science Center developed the Hidden Stories project to reveal these stories on its 200 acre campus. The project utilizes over 24 trail cameras to document the variety of wildlife present and GIS mapping to analyze the patterns of use. Join Naturalist Eric D’Aleo to see the amazing images captured and the patterns revealed through mapping, and learn ways you can use this technology in your own backyard.
Eric is a naturalist at Squam Lakes Natural Science Center and has worked in the formal and informal education field for over 30 years. He received a B.S. in Biology from State University of New York at Geneseo and has completed graduate course work in the natural sciences, education, and NH history. Eric has New Hampshire certification for secondary education in the life sciences (grade 7 – 12) and has taught science in elementary, junior high, and high schools. In his spare time, Eric can be found out in the woods or on the water taking wildlife photographs in summer and beside the woodstove carving wood spoons in winter.
Presented as part of the Museum’s summer exhibition: Wayfinding: Maps of the White Mountains. The Virtual Summer 2021 Speaker Series was made possible with support from New Hampshire Humanities, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities. Learn more at www.nhhumanities.org
