In the Thick of It: Maine’s New England Cottontail

Oct 4
2:00-3:30 pm

Join Jeff Tash, New England Cottontail Habitat Restoration Coordinator, for a 1.5 hour CELT sponsored walk at Pollack Brook Preserve on Sunday October 4 from 2:00pm-3:30 pm. Participants of this Cape Elizabeth Land Trust sponsored event will enjoy learning about the state-endangered New England Cottontail, the conservation effort taking place to recover the species here in southern Maine, and what you can do to help!

Cape Elizabeth is home to the largest known population of New England cottontails in Maine. The cottontails’ range has declined by 86% over the past 50 years due to loss of large thicket and young forest habitats. Come learn about where they live, what other animals also need these thickets, and what we are doing to help cottontails rebound in Maine. All proceeds go to CELT.
