Doug Blodgett will discuss this reclusive but much maligned and misunderstood reptile, and its unique contribution to Vermont’s native wildlife community. Doug will reveal some interesting results of his research on this endangered species, and discuss the tough challenges it faces as well as the life history of this original Vermont native animal at the very northern end of its range in the continental US.
