Nature Learning Center, Albany
Dr. Kenneth Kimball, recently retired director of the AMC's Research Department, is a co-author of the just released 2nd edition of the "Ecological Atlas of the Upper Androscoggin River Watershed".

Also discussed will be how some of the region's charismatic fauna like moose were almost driven to extinction and have since made a major recovery whiles others, particularly top predators, like the wolf and cougar remain extinct though the landscape would likely support them.
