Dinner Disrupted: Connecticut's Changing Landscape

March 10, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Ginny Apple, a Master Wildlife Conservationist with the CT Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), will deliver a discussion on Connecticut’s Changing Landscapes. Landscapes are dynamic ecosystems and Connecticut’s landscape has changed through the centuries from almost completely forested in the 1600s to cleared land by the mid-1800s. Presently, the state is almost 60 percent forested. As the landscape changed in Connecticut so did the wildlife populations that depend on the land for habitat. This presentation describes the history of Connecticut’s landscape and the impact of change on wildlife populations.

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.
