Join Ginny Apple, Connecticut Certified Master Wildlife Conservationist, as she presents “Wildlife and Connecticut’s Changing Landscapes.”   Landscapes are dynamic ecosystems. Connecticut’s landscape has changed through the centuries, from almost all forest in the 1600s, to cleared land by the mid-1800s. Presently, Connecticut is about 60 percent forest.
