Eyes of the Wild Rescue and Wallaby Tales Events

Join us every Wednesday June 9th – July 14th at 7 pm to meet and learn about 5 new animals each week. This program is approximately 45 minutes long and geared toward children 4 and up. Click here to register.

Are You Smarter than a Mammalogist Trivia

This fun-filled, interactive game challenges your mammal knowledge. What can we learn by exploring how other mammals are born and raised? With a focus on early childhood, we uncover fascinating facts, amazing adaptations, and parenting peculiarities. There are over 6,000 mammal species, ranging in shape, size, and habitat. Learn about the diverse ways babies develop (in a womb, pouch, or egg), survive (are they “nest,” “cache,” “follow,” or “carry” mammals?), and how fast or slow the young grow up (newborn blue whales gain 8 pounds per hour!).

Come ready to learn, and leave with an appreciation for the diversity in animal adaptations. Dates: Monday, July 19th at 11:00 or Wednesday, July 21st at 7:00. Click here to register.
