Beavers in North America

Eager To Learn About Beavers?

Wonder why Beavers are called “eager” or why they gnaw saplings—even large trees—to build their dams and lodges? In this talk, DEEP Master Wildlife Conservationist Ginny Apple will discuss this keystone species, Beaver biology, behavior and history and describe the unique role of nature’s engineers in shaping North American landscapes as well as explain how Beaver ponds and wetlands can help us fight environmental problems from water pollution to erosion and climate change.

A native Texan, Ginny Apple was one of the first full-time women sportswriters in the country, who left the field mid-career to pursue a path in communications/public relations. Through the years she has hiked, climbed, kayaked, skied and poked her way through the outdoors and developed a passion for all things natural. A move to the middle of the woods in Barkhamsted 15 years ago brought her into an environment filled with bears and other wildlife.

Living in a house surrounded by Peoples State Forest, she observes a large population of Black Bears and supplies field notes and photographs on them to DEEP bear biologists. Her affinity for this magnificent creature led her out west to participate in a Grizzly research mission in Montana and to become a Master Wildlife Conservationist with the State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, for which she gives almost 100 talks yearly and volunteers monitoring the local bear population. As an MWC she also, along with many other activities, serves as a Bald Eagle interpreter for the Shepaug Dam Eagle Viewing area and the Essex Steam Train’s Eagle Flyer and created and runs the Barkhamsted Earth Day Nature Festival, a yearly event on the last Sunday in April that draws an average of 800 people to Peoples State Forest.

Ginny is Chairman of the Barkhamsted Conservation Commission and a member of the Barkhamsted Economic Development Commission and on the Boards of the Farmington River Watershed Association (FRWA), the Friends of American Legion and Peoples State Forests (FALPS), the Friends of Connecticut State Parks and the Western Connecticut Tourism District. She also maintains the Facebook pages for the Town of Barkhamsted, FALPS and the Barkhamsted Historical Society. Just to keep her creative juices percolating, she has a side business, Murder Without Pain, where she writes murder mystery games based on historical subjects and runs them at country inns, corporate parties and fundraisers.

Registration is required to receive the Zoom information.  If you have not received the Zoom invite by the day of the program, please check your spam - especially Gmail users! Most invites are sent 7 - 10 days before the program.

America's Revolutionary War

America's Revolutionary War - A Historical Perspective.   Introduction [Session 1 of 7]

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb

America’s War for Independence was victorious despite considerable odds favoring the Sea and Land forces of the British Empire which were, at that time, the most powerful on earth. The symbolism of this David vs. Goliath struggle and the impact of the Declaration of Independence endure among the pivotal events of world history.

America's Revolutionary War - A Historical Perspective.   Introduction [Session 1 of 7]

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb

America’s War for Independence was victorious despite considerable odds favoring the Sea and Land forces of the British Empire which were, at that time, the most powerful on earth. The symbolism of this David vs. Goliath struggle and the impact of the Declaration of Independence endure among the pivotal events of world history. In this multi-part series on the Revolutionary War, Mr. Gottlieb will seek to provide historical and contextual understanding of why the War for Independence was fought and an examination of the philosophical and moral arguments of those impassioned enlightenment era thinkers and statesmen who betrayed their King and Country to fight for American independence.

America's Revolutionary War

America's Revolutionary War - A Historical Perspective.   Pilgrims and Refugees [Session 2 of 7]

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb

America’s War for Independence was victorious despite considerable odds favoring the Sea and Land forces of the British Empire which were, at that time, the most powerful on earth. The symbolism of this David vs. Goliath struggle and the impact of the Declaration of Independence endure among the pivotal events of world history. In this multi-part series on the Revolutionary War, Mr. Gottlieb will seek to provide historical and contextual understanding of why the War for Independence was fought and an examination of the philosophical and moral arguments of those impassioned enlightenment era thinkers and statesmen who betrayed their King and Country to fight for American independence.

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb, LCSW, CSA. Art Gottlieb is a local historian on subjects of political and military history.  He was formerly a professional curator of naval history and the Technical Director of Exhibits at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in New York City.  In these roles, Mr. Gottlieb worked regularly with veterans of all services towards the creation of exhibits accurately illustrating the history of 20th century warfare. Mr. Gottlieb maintains a private practice as a Counselor and Certified Senior Advisor in Norwalk, CT, and offers Pro Bono counseling services to soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.  Mr. Gottlieb served as an Auxiliary Officer of the United States Coast Guard for 17 years and for 4 years was Commander of Flotilla 7-2, 1st District (Southern Region), Sector Long Island Sound North.

America's Revolutionary War - A Historical Perspective.   Pilgrims and Refugees [Session 2 of 7]

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb

America’s War for Independence was victorious despite considerable odds favoring the Sea and Land forces of the British Empire which were, at that time, the most powerful on earth. The symbolism of this David vs. Goliath struggle and the impact of the Declaration of Independence endure among the pivotal events of world history. In this multi-part series on the Revolutionary War, Mr. Gottlieb will seek to provide historical and contextual understanding of why the War for Independence was fought and an examination of the philosophical and moral arguments of those impassioned enlightenment era thinkers and statesmen who betrayed their King and Country to fight for American independence.

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb, LCSW, CSA. Art Gottlieb is a local historian on subjects of political and military history.  He was formerly a professional curator of naval history and the Technical Director of Exhibits at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in New York City.  In these roles, Mr. Gottlieb worked regularly with veterans of all services towards the creation of exhibits accurately illustrating the history of 20th century warfare. Mr. Gottlieb maintains a private practice as a Counselor and Certified Senior Advisor in Norwalk, CT, and offers Pro Bono counseling services to soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.  Mr. Gottlieb served as an Auxiliary Officer of the United States Coast Guard for 17 years and for 4 years was Commander of Flotilla 7-2, 1st District (Southern Region), Sector Long Island Sound North.

Black Bears in Connecticut

Join Master Wildlife Conservationist Ginny Apple as she talks about black bears, focusing on the natural history of black bears in Connecticut, an overview of black bear habitat, diet, behavior, reproduction and current research efforts. She also provides practical recommendations for optimum co-existence with our black bear population. Black bear artifacts are shared with the audience.

A native Texan, Ginny Apple was one of the first full-time women sportswriters in the country, who left the field mid-career to pursue a path in communications/public relations. Through the years she has hiked, climbed, kayaked, skied and poked her way through the outdoors and developed a passion for all things natural.

A move to the middle of the woods in Barkhamsted over a 15 years ago brought her into an environment filled with bears and other wildlife. Living in a house surrounded by Peoples State Forest, she observes a large population of Black Bears and supplies field notes and photographs on them to DEEP bear biologists. Her affinity for this magnificent creature led her out west to participate in a Grizzly research mission in Montana and to become a Master Wildlife Conservationist with the State Department of Energy and Environmental Protection. Her focused expertise is on Bears, Bobcats, Bald Eagles, Beavers and Coyotes, although she volunteers on numerous wildlife projects, including helping with necropsies on road kill animals and gives talks on a variety of other animals and birds. She is a member of the Barkhamsted Conservation and Economic Development Commissions, on the Boards of the Farmington River Watershed Association, the Friends of American Legion and Peoples State Forests (FALPS), the Friends of Connecticut State Parks and volunteers regularly with the Barkhamsted Historical Society (BHS) and maintains the Town's Facebook page as well as that of FALPS and BHS. Just to keep her creative juices percolating, she has a side business, Murder Without Pain, where she writes murder mystery games based on historical subjects and runs them at country inns, corporate parties and fundraisers

America's Revolutionary War

America's Revolutionary War - A Historical Perspective.   British North America [Session 3 of 7]

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb

America’s War for Independence was victorious despite considerable odds favoring the Sea and Land forces of the British Empire which were, at that time, the most powerful on earth. The symbolism of this David vs. Goliath struggle and the impact of the Declaration of Independence endure among the pivotal events of world history. In this multi-part series on the Revolutionary War, Mr. Gottlieb will seek to provide historical and contextual understanding of why the War for Independence was fought and an examination of the philosophical and moral arguments of those impassioned enlightenment era thinkers and statesmen who betrayed their King and Country to fight for American independence.

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb, LCSW, CSA. Art Gottlieb is a local historian on subjects of political and military history.  He was formerly a professional curator of naval history and the Technical Director of Exhibits at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in New York City.  In these roles, Mr. Gottlieb worked regularly with veterans of all services towards the creation of exhibits accurately illustrating the history of 20th century warfare. Mr. Gottlieb maintains a private practice as a Counselor and Certified Senior Advisor in Norwalk, CT, and offers Pro Bono counseling services to soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.  Mr. Gottlieb served as an Auxiliary Officer of the United States Coast Guard for 17 years and for 4 years was Commander of Flotilla 7-2, 1st District (Southern Region), Sector Long Island Sound North.

America’s War for Independence was victorious despite considerable odds favoring the Sea and Land forces of the British Empire which were, at that time, the most powerful on earth. The symbolism of this David vs. Goliath struggle and the impact of the Declaration of Independence endure among the pivotal events of world history. In this multi-part series on the Revolutionary War, Mr. Gottlieb will seek to provide historical and contextual understanding of why the War for Independence was fought and an examination of the philosophical and moral arguments of those impassioned enlightenment era thinkers and statesmen who betrayed their King and Country to fight for American independence.

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb, LCSW, CSA. Art Gottlieb is a local historian on subjects of political and military history.  He was formerly a professional curator of naval history and the Technical Director of Exhibits at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in New York City.  In these roles, Mr. Gottlieb worked regularly with veterans of all services towards the creation of exhibits accurately illustrating the history of 20th century warfare. Mr. Gottlieb maintains a private practice as a Counselor and Certified Senior Advisor in Norwalk, CT, and offers Pro Bono counseling services to soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.  Mr. Gottlieb served as an Auxiliary Officer of the United States Coast Guard for 17 years and for 4 years was Commander of Flotilla 7-2, 1st District (Southern Region), Sector Long Island Sound North.
