Join MCHT regional steward and naturalist Kirk Gentalen at the Thomas Memorial Library in Cape Elizabeth on Thursday, January 26 for a lively talk (with lots of visual aids) about one of Maine’s often misunderstood members of the mustelid family.

“Fishers are King” is the third chapter in a trilogy of wildlife appreciation presentations presented by Maine Coast Heritage Trust. Following the pace set by “Owls are Easy” and the sequel “Otters are Easier,” “Fishers are King” will dive headfirst into what makes the Fisher everyone’s favorite/least favorite Mustelid (weasel family).

Personal stories, photos and videos will make this a Thursday night full of education and appreciation as we explore the presence of Fishers in midcoast Maine. Tracking tips and advice will be shared, and reviews (often uncensored) of “helpful” tools will be shared as well. Costumes encouraged.
