“Vanished Fauna of the Catskill Mountains”     Presented by Justin Wexler of Wild Hudson Valley with Campfire on the campus of the Mountain Top Historical Society

August 10 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

A handful of fascinating creatures once inhabited the Catskill Mountain region, but have disappeared over the last three centuries. Join Justin Wexler, educator at Wild Hudson Valley, around the campfire to learn about these animals, their impact on local ecosystems, and their role in indigenous folklore and land use.

Justin Wexler is a life-long resident of the Hudson Valley, who has devoted his life to sharing his love of the natural world and for the region’s original inhabitants. Obsessed with nature from his earliest years, he has spent most of his life either in the outdoors or in research on local history and ethnoecology. He has a BA in History and Anthropology from Marlboro College in Vermont and a Professional Certificate in Environmental Policy as well as a MA in Teaching from Bard College.
