The moose, the largest mammal to walk in the Northeast since the mastodon, was eliminated from much of the region, including all of New York, before the Civil War. Even as a regional recovery was underway in the 1970s and 1980s, and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds, from hunters to hikers, celebrated their return, an ominous storm was forming on the horizon. Join Scott Darling, Big Game Director for Vermont Fish and Wildlife, as he tells the story of moose in Vermont and what this storm means across the region and the country.

NOTE: Organized groups (scouts, schools, hiking clubs, etc.) are welcome, but are asked to call Five Rivers at 518-475-0291 to register.
