WE ARE EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR FARMERS AND THE COMMUNITY TO COME TOGETHER AND LEARN ABOUT AND SHARE EXPERIENCES REGARDING CARNIVORES
AND THEIR ROLES ON OUR FARMS.
COME JOINS US!
If you are not able to come, organize such a gathering where you live
The following is a short description of our gathering ~
Farms are not isolated parcels but are part of an entire community. Carnivores play an important role in the Earth’s ecosystems; systems that agriculture thrives in. This lyceum will be a panel discussion with Geri Vistein, a Carnivore Conservation Biologist who will take us into the lives of the carnivores living in the North Country, describing their sociology, hunting habits and life cycles. Abby Sadauckas, whose family owns the Applecreek Farm in Bowdoinham, Maine, and is a member of the Farming with Carnivores Network, will share her farm’s understanding of the carnivores around them, and what they do to live together with them. Shaun and Linda Gilliland are local livestock farmers who use a combination of tools to protect against predators. They will discuss their experiences farming with carnivores over the years.
