ohn Kulish, trapper-turned-conservationist and the Harris Center’s first naturalist, published his classic book Bobcats Before Breakfast in 1969. In celebration of the Harris Center’s 50th Anniversary, Stackpole Books recently republished it after nearly five decades of being out of print. Come find out about John’s remarkable life and legacy and hear excerpts from this evocative book, which captures a moment in time in the Monadnock Region.
Following the program, if conditions are just right, naturalists Meade Cadot and Susie Spikol will lead an outing at Shieling Forest to do one of the things John Kulish loved the most – go tracking! From 1 to 2:30 p.m., we’ll look for signs of the animals John cherished, including bobcats and otters. Since the tracking excursion is contingent on weather and snow conditions, check this page the day before the program to see if it’s still on.
