DALTON, Mass. — Wildlife biologist Nathan Buckhout will present at the March Berkshire Green Drinks gathering on Wednesday, March 8, at 6:00 PM in person at Shire Breu-Hous inside The Stationery Factory, 63 Flansburg Ave. and online via Zoom.
Buckhout will talk about Mustelids, otherwise known as the weasel family, and go over some common characteristics of the diverse group.
Mustelids are a family of carnivorous mammals, which include weasels, minks, otters, fishers, martens, and wolverines, among others. Buckhout will briefly discuss each species presently in Massachusetts, as well as species that have disappeared from the region. He will also discuss some common misconceptions and human-mustelid-related issues that commonly occur.
Additionally, Buckhout is an expert on bears and enjoys discussing all types of wildlife; he welcomes all questions about any wildlife during the Q&A session.
