Hunker Down with Wildlife: Sunday, December 7th, 4:30-8pm

Wildlife Program and MOVIE!  The cold has settled in, and while we're warmly tucked in our beds, wild animals are using their adaptations to survive the cold! Bring your sleeping bags and favorite stuffed animal friends to join Center For Wildlife educators and wild ambassadors in the Mount Agamenticus Learning Lodge for a "winter wildlife adaptations" program. Following the program, stick around for an almost "sleepover" to watch Ice Age with pizza and popcorn. (Pajamas are optional. The lodge is NOT heated, so please dress warm!)

This event is open to all ages and has a $7 suggested donation per person for the educational program; movie screening is free. Donations will directly support Center for Wildlife's work with local wildlife and the conservation and education efforts of the Mount Agamenticus Conservation Region.
