  • Bobcats in CT: Wildlife Presentation by Susan Robinson from DEEP

    Thu. April 25, 2019  6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

    Connecticut's once dwindling bobcat population was facing extirpation until 1972 when unregulated exploitation was halted and the bobcat was reclassified as a protected furbearer with no hunting or trapping seasons. The bobcat population has since recovered due to improving forest habitat conditions and legal protections. By 1825, only 25% of Connecticut was forested due to a loss of trees from agricultural activities and other uses of timber. Today, close to 60% of Connecticut is now covered in forest, and bobcats are regularly observed throughout the state.

    Just how abundant is the state's bobcat population? This is only one question the Wildlife Division is trying to answer with its Bobcat Project. The DEEP Wildlife Division initiated a bobcat study in 2017 to investigate bobcat habitat use in different housing densities in Connecticut. Biologists want to determine how the state's bobcats meet their needs in both rural and suburban areas, as well as how successful bobcats are at reproduction and survival.

    Learn all about it bobcats and what you, as a citizen, can do to help.

  • Ragtime Jack

    Thu. May 23, 2019  6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

    'Ragtime' Jack Radcliffe has been performing for more than 45 years. He is a master of traditional country blues and stride piano, and a powerful singer/songwriter, as well. He also accompanies himself on the guitar and harmonicas and has lately added the fiddle to his arsenal of musical weapons.

    He was a fixture on the coffeehouse circuit in the late '60s and early '70s. His major early musical partnership was with Georgia country blues guitarist and singer Larry Johnson, in 1968 -1970. His band 'The New Viper Revue' pushed the genre envelopes of blues, folk, rock 'n' roll and jazz from 1972 -1976. Jack resumed his solo career in 1977, then teamed up with reed player Al Oliveira in 1983.

    He retired from the music business, except for occasional local engagements, in 1987 to raise his sons. Now he's back full-time in the music, directing Wepecket's operations, producing other artists' recordings and touring with the Rolling Roots Revue.

    Jack is also touring with Deborah Anne Fisher as the "Fisher & Radcliffe" duo, and plays piano, guitar, fiddle and banjo in their show of "songs from the heart of America."

    Most recently, Jack has joined "The Boston Boatmen," as fiddler, backup vocalist and occasional rhythm guitarist.

    Jack was inducted into the Old Time Country Music Hall of Fame in August, 2014.
