Wave Hill offers March 25 talk on wildlife history of New York

Over a century of human settlement and development have brought many changes to the Hudson Valley, as well as to the wildlife in the region.

On Sat., March 25 at 2 p.m., environmental educator Megan Hoffman from the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum will highlight five native animals whose natural histories have been significantly impacted by human activity at a special Nature Talk at Wave Hill.

A closer look at the sturgeon, beaver, box turtle, coyote and bald eagle illustrates how pollutants, habitat loss and preservation, over-hunting and other human interventions have affected their populations over time.

This program is free with admission to the grounds. Ages 10 and older welcome with an adult.

The garden is at West 249th Street and Independence Avenue, Bronx.

Admission to the grounds is $8; $4 students and senior 65+, $2 children 6-18.
