Upcoming Events

Saturday, April 4, 10am to noon -  Insect Safari:  The Gross World of Bugs - Join Christy LeDuc, Entomologist at Oakland Nature Preserve, for a closer look into the gross world of bugs! Necrophagy, coprophagia, and enetophagy- say what? Find out about these bizarre and sometimes disturbing (to humans) insect behaviors. After the presentation, join Christy for an Insect Safari around the Preserve hunting for some of those creepy crawlies on our trails, catch and release, of course! Nets will be provided while they last.  Free Program!

Thursday, April 16, 7pm - Eco Movie Night - Last Extinction - What killed the mammoths? Near the end of the last ice age 13,000 years ago, these mighty beasts disappeared from North America together with some 35 other groups of mammals. For four decades, debate has raged over the cause of their abrupt demise. Last Extinction presents an in-depth investigation of a controversial new hypothesis which suggests that a massive impact from space could be the culprit, and also explores alternate theories.  Free program!

We have many exciting events happening in the next few months.  Be sure to visit our calendar or our education page for full listings.
