“Ups and Downs of Our Birds and Mammals” by Peter Alden will be presented Sept. 25, at 7 p.m. (book signing at 6:30 p.m.) at the Assabet River NWR Visitor Center, 680 Hudson Rd., Sudbury. Learn how bird and mammal life has changed from Thoreau’s day to today. Topics will include the invasion of prairie life eastwards, overhunting to not enough hunting, the recent surge in bird feeding, the plague of invasive alien plants and insects, the return of larger mammals and birds, and the overpopulation of deer, geese and outdoor cats. The talk is free and open to the public. A short business meeting will take place before the presentation.
