"Coming to a Suburb Near You" with Ian Ives from Mass Audubon.   The Cape’s forests, fields and neighborhoods are alive with an ever increasing number of wildlife that were once thought to be rare or in decline.  Some wildlife has become a nuisance or even a threat to our lifestyles.  We will explore the local increase in abundance of deer, coyote, fisher, turkey, bobcat and osprey and the conflicts, management measures and ethical considerations that arise as a result

 

Thursday, August 25 @ 3:00 pm - Author Capt. Bob Rydervoyagesfromchatham

In Voyages From Chatham: A Memoir, local fisherman and author Bob Ryder takes us through a life lived on the water, as a child, a teenager, a husband and father.  He shares it all: the successes, the failures, the bitter, the sweet, and the lessons learned along the way.  From Chatham to Nova Scotia to the Panama Canal, to California and back again, Ryder encountered sharks, fire, sinkings and hypothermia, as well as record catches, pet-able whales, moonlight miracles and a solar eclipse.  Through it all, one constant prevailed: the incredible camaraderie shared by men who give their lives, and their hearts, to the sea.
