A hike led by Dr. John McDonald has been set for January 7th on Guyette Farm in Plainfield. Guyette is a patchwork of shrubland habitat, grasslands, young forests, as well as old growth trees, all bisected by Meadow Brook. John will be drawing on his extensive knowledge and years of study to explain how species contend with winter in these habitats. Hot cider and cookies will be provided. Make sure to bundle up for this one!

Dr. John McDonald is a wildlife biologist and Professor in the Environmental Science Department at Westfield State University.  John has 3 decades of experience working on wildlife research and management in northeastern forests, on species including black bears, deer, and moose.  John previously worked for MassWildlife as the state deer biologist and for the US Fish & Wildlife Service as a wildlife research specialist administering millions of dollars of grant funds to state fish and wildlife agencies in the Northeast.  He is a Past-President and Fellow of The Wildlife Society, the largest international organization of wildlife biologists and managers.  Time TBD.
