Wild turkey talk slated for Rockland library
Rockland — On Thursday, Nov. 8 at 6:30 p.m., Kelsey Sullivan, Migratory and Upland Game Bird biologist with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries talk about the expansion of wild turkey populations in Maine at the Rockland Public Library in the community room.
The state actively made attempts to reintroduce turkeys from 1942 to 1988, and turkeys are now found from York to Penobscot counties. Once reduced to meager numbers, the turkey is now prospering through the combined efforts of wildlife managers and sportsmen. Sullivan will fill guests in on the most recent turkey talk with information about turkeys, tips on seeing and hearing, human/wildlife interactions, harvest information and comeback of this wild game bird to Maine.
This talk is part of the Walks & Talks series with Georges River Land Trust, partnering with the Rockland Public Library's Thursday evening series of talks, which are free and open to the public.
