Screening & discussion of Ken Burns' The Central Park Five
The Central Park Five tells the story of the five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem who were wrongly convicted of raping a white woman in New York City’s Central Park in 1989. The film chronicles the Central Park Jogger case, for the first time from the perspective of the five teenagers whose lives were upended by this miscarriage of justice.
It wasn’t that long ago that seeing a woman hunting was a rare sight. However, today females are the fastest growing demographic in the sport, and are now commonly seen in the field and hunting camps across the state. Keeping this trend alive is important to Fish and Wildlife departments across the country. But it’s also important to the women who want to share the thrills and empowerment enjoyed by the sport with their female friends and daughters. We head out fall turkey hunting with long time huntress Wendy Butler.

Like any hand eye sport, success at shooting clay targets or wing shooting requires practice and proper mechanics. Anyone who’s swung a golf club or pitched a baseball knows that the slightest change in mechanics can result in either disaster or tremendous success. Thanks to shooting instructors at Orvis, the wing shooting skills of thousands of waterfowl and upland bird hunters have been improved since 1973, when they opened their first shooting school in Manchester, Vermont.

Close to four dozen baby spiny softshell turtles were collected last autumn by Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department Biologist Steve Parren. They over-wintered at ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center, at the Leahy Center for Lake Champlain under the care of ECHO’s Animal Care staff. In late June a group of volunteers and staff released the turtles back into Lake Champlain. This marks the seventh year of this important animal preservation program.
