Some of our programs
The Night Shift: Nocturnal Animals
This program includes discussion of the adaptations of some of our native animals who are active at night. We bring along one or more of our live, non-releasable educational ambassador birds.
What can happen to our bay when different pollutants are washed down storm drains? we use “fake” pollutants to stand in for the real thing and add them to a vat of clean water to illustrate what happens to the bay. We discuss alternatives that will help keep our bay clean. This program is presented by our youth educators.
A look at forests, marshland and suburban habitats and the animals who live there.
Raptors, Day and Night
A look at the adaptations that make diurnal and nocturnal raptors successful at what they do.
