Virtual: The Netherlands: Land of Wind, Water and Wildlife (grades 6-Adult)

Tuesday September 1, 2020
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM


Flyer for The NetherlandsJoin Naturalist and Educator Joy Marzolf for Storrs Library's Around the World Nature Series for The Netherlands: Land of Wind, Water and Wildlife. To many, windmills are the iconic symbol of the Netherlands. For many centuries, the Dutch have controlled the flow of water with dykes and windmills in order to reclaim land from the sea. In more recent years, they have added vast storm barriers to protect their population from stronger storms and higher seas. While much of the land is engineered, there have been great efforts to protect the nature that remains. From year round and migratory birds to mammals, butterflies and flowers, signs of nature can be found in surprising abundance across the grasslands, forests, wetlands and seashores. Join us for a tour of the history and amazing wildlife of the Netherlands.
