Fishers in Connecticut

FISHERS IN CONNECTICUT WITH DEEP MASTER WILDLIFE CONSERVATIONIST RICHARD TAYLOR

Fishers are also known as fisher cats but they’re not cats at all. The fisher is a large member of the weasel family. Its name is misleading because unlike the closely related river otter, fishers seldom eat fish. The fisher is one of a few carnivores known to prey on porcupines; they also eat rabbits, small rodents, birds, carrion, fruits and nuts. Though active day and night, fishers are primarily nocturnal. Learn more about the mysterious fisher with this CT DEEP Master Wildlife Conservationist presentation at 5 p.m., Tuesday, April 16 at the Essex Library.

Richard Taylor is a retired Human Resources executive. He has a passion for education and continuous learning and has served as a Chief Learning Officer, a member of the Federal Committee on Apprenticeship and Rhode Island Vocational Council and has degrees and executive certifications from SCSU, RPI and Cornell. Richard has had an interest in wildlife and fishing his entire life. Since his retirement, he completed Connecticut’s
Master Wildlife Conservationist program and is now active volunteering and presenting programs on wildlife to libraries and nonprofit organizations.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560. The Essex Library is located at 33 West Avenue in Essex.
