Moose Health and Survival in New York
Talk by Jen Grauer, Phd Student at Cornell University working with the Cornell Wildlife Health Lab
Saturday, July 8, 3 – 4 pm
Since recolonizing the state in the 1980’s, moose have increased in number until a recent population stagnation. Despite high adult survival and reproduction, adequate quantities and quality of suitable habitat, and tolerable climate, moose remain at low densities compared to neighboring states. Populations within the northeast have fluctuated because of disease, and we have initiated a study on moose health and juvenile survival in New York to assess the local impact of parasites. This talk will cover aims of the project, methods for studying moose, and lessons learned thus far.

NorthWind Fine Arts Presents
An Exhibit by Damon Hartman & Heidi Gutersloh
Featured Artists for July, 2023
Heidi talks of her recent travels and inspirations, saying, “During my recent travels to VA, TN and NH, I couldn’t help but admire the different types of barns and their surroundings. Since my partner in our July exhibit is the award winning woodturner, Damon Hartman, it made sense to paint these wooden structures in all their glory to pair with Damon’s classic bowls and vases. You may even see an ADK barn or two.”
NorthWind Fine Arts is pleased to feature a special exhibit featuring the paintings of Heidi Gutersloh and turned wood pieces of Damon Hartman.
Damon notes, “If you live in or are visiting the Adirondacks and you want a piece of wood art that represents the area, I think you will find something from my collection. I focus on working with wood that has distinct character and I strive to create pieces that are special, or even unusual, and not easy to find. The wood is the art—I just turn it.”
