We recently had Animal Embassy come to visit our class. Some of you were interested in going to the Stamford Nature Center to visit and learn more. Here is the website.
There is a program going on this Friday, February 1, 2013.
6:00 – 6:45 pm: 3-6 years of age
7:00 – 8:00 pm: 6 & older
Join Animal Embassy at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center for this Outdoors Adventure program. All animals have special adaptations that enable them to survive the diversity of challenges they face in their particular habitats. This program will explore the extreme side of some of Animal Embassy’s amazing Animal Ambassadors. Meet non-venomous king snakes capable of eating rattlesnakes, a hedgehog that sees deadly scorpions as a possible snack, a non-toxic poison dart frog, an African bullfrog that can sleep for more than a year and Taiga, the Eurasian Eagle Owl, one of the largest owls in the world, with a potential wingspan of up to six feet. Discover the amazing adaptations that make these some of nature’s and Animal Embassy’s “Most Extreme.”
There is also a program going on during February vacation.
