The Great New England Sea Serpent
Tuesday, June 11th at 6pm

An enormous creature has been lurking off the coast of New England for centuries–at least according to numerous accounts. It has been seen by Native Americans, ship captains, clergymen, government officials, and residents of seacoast villages. Are these stories believable? Is this mammoth sea monster fact or fable? Were these witnesses lying or were they mistaken in what they saw? Or were they really seeing some still unidentified giant snake-like sea animal?
Michael Faiella will examine the legend and reality of the great New England sea serpent, the Gloucester Sea Serpent. Michael is a retired public school history teacher. He grew up on an island where the creature was spotted (according to Scientific American) in the 19th century. He and his wife tend a garden and chickens at their Northwood home, their three children having flown the coop.

The Real Eastern Coyote with Chris Schadler, M.S., Conservation Biology
Wednesday, September 18th at 6:30pm


Learn the true story of the eastern coyote – how and when it arrived in New England, how it lives among us but is rarely seen and how it contributes to keep our forests and fields healthy.  Learn why it is a creature of our own making!  It is smart, beneficial and by its presence, gives “wild” back to our wild lands.  This New Wild also requires that livestock and pet owners step up to steward our creatures with greater care. Despite the ecological benefits the coyote brings, it is the most persecuted carnivore in North America.  Yet, it survives and thrives despite efforts to eradicate it.
