The 40-minute film Wild Things of North Quabbin, shot in the New Salem woods by Hank Cramer, shows the secret lives of locally common birds and mammals. Hank’s love of nature, perseverance, and sense of curiosity give us a glimpse across four seasons in our local landscape. The movie features more than 25 species of local animals including rarely seen behaviors of beavers, bears, bobcats, turkeys, fish, coyotes and herons.
This free event will include a Q&A about local land conservation with Mount Grace staff and a chance to meet some of the animals hosted by local wildlife rehabilitator Medicine Mammals.
Shot in the New Salem woods, the film offers us glimpses into the secret lives of locally common birds and mammals. “The wild things in the film encourage us to conserve the local landscape they need for a home and can remind us that people need the land, too, for air to breathe, water to drink, wood for our homes, and, as importantly, for inspiration,” says Leigh Youngblood, Mount Grace Executive Director. Youngblood will be speaking at the event, which will also include a chance to meet some of the animals currently staying with local wildlife rehabilitator Medicine Mammals.
Hank’s love of nature, perseverance, and sense of curiosity give us a glimpse across four seasons in our local landscape.
