Environmental Alert:
Spotted Lantern Flies

Native to India, China and Vietnam, the first US sighting of the Spotted Lantern Fly was in 2014 in Pennsylvania, by July 2021 the lanternfly had spread to about half of Pennsylvania, large areas of New Jersey, parts of New York, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, western Connecticut, eastern Ohio, and Indiana.

 

EcoWatch recently published a great article on what these bugs eat, how they breed and spread, and most importantly what we can do to help slow their spread. Mainly this entails identifying and eradicating new infestations wherever they arise.

The tragic passing of
Bear 211

Tony Aiello from CBS spoke with Ms. Becky about the tragic passing of Bear 211 and how we can better coexist with wildlife.

 

Bear 211 was a wild bear with quite the social media following. Thousands tracked his travels and exploits on Facebook as he roamed CT.

Environmental Alert:
Songbird Disease

Please help stop the spread of a new mysterious songbird disease. In recent weeks, our neighbors in the midwest, mid-Atlantic, and southeast have reported an unusually high number of songbirds found sick or already dead.

 

The species most affected so far have been common visitors to backyard bird feeders and birdbaths. Here is how YOU can help: Remove birdfeeders and birdbaths to prevent birds from congregating and potentially spreading disease.

Thank you, Westport News
