The Moose of the North Woods with Lee Kantar, Moose Expert, Maine Dept. of Inland Fisheries & Wildlife.
It’s said that one of Thoreau’s last dying words was “Moose” – still the most sought-after forest giant that people seek to see in Maine today. Come find out why, with Maine’s best expert about our North Woods moose populations, life cycles, and why we continue to have the highest numbers of them outside of Alaska. Lee Kantar’s studies are internationally watched by field experts. In 2019, he was honored with the Distinguished at the 53rd North American Conference on Moose. Moose Biologist Award. Past recipients have included those from Canada, Sweden, Finland, and Norway. We are fortunate to have this North American leader about moose available for the Thoreau Wabanaki Festival, where he will talk about Maine’s pioneering long-term moose study.
The Festival is made in partnership with Moosehead’s Natural Resource Education Center and the Penobscot Nation Cultural & Historic Preservation Dept., Maine Woods Forever, and the Moosehead Historical Society.
