As part of our free Garden School Series, we are very excited to host “Nature’s Nightshift: Nocturnal Animals.” Taught by the Center for Wildlife, this kid-friendly class is a wonderful introduction to New England’s creatures of the night.
How does a bat find thousands of tiny mosquitoes in the dark? Why would an opossum choose to lumber around at night? How does a porcupine defend himself against a predator? How can an owl see its way through the forest? Wild animals continue their hard work, even as we sleep.
Using live animals and hands-on materials, the Center for Wildlife (Cape Neddick, ME) will answer these questions and teach you how nocturnal mammals utilize all of their senses to find food and shelter at night. REAL, living, non-releasable animal ambassadors will also demonstrate some unique adaptations, up close and personal!
A perfect event for your kids and their friends. And adults will love it too!
Please RSVP so we can plan for headcount. See you all there!
