What's Included

Landscapes are dynamic ecosystems. Connecticut’s landscape has changed through the centuries from almost all forest in the 1600s to cleared land by the mid-1800s. Presently Connecticut is about 60 percent forest. As the landscape changed in Connecticut, so did the wildlife populations that depend on the land for habitat. This presentation describes the history of Connecticut’s landscape and the impact of change on wildlife populations.
