For Adults Only: Mammals I
The smartest, the largest, and arguably the most charismatic animals on earth are mammals. Give yourself the luxury of learning what really makes us, and our mammal brethren, tick. In the first part of this three-part program (February 24 and 25, also), we’ll focus on mammal physiology and discover their various adaptations to foods, habitats, and their own niche. Tracking and learning to read mammal ‘signs’ are also planned. Participants will receive their own field guide to Mammals of Ohio, and enjoy a guided tour at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Participants must attend all three parts. Space is limited.
7 - 9 p.m. WSC
Register by phone or online by February 21
For Adults Only: Mammals II
On the second evening of this three-part program (February 23 and 25 also), learn the secrets of mammal behaviors. We will cover reproduction (including mate choice and parental care strategies) in some depth, and practice our tracking skills. Carpooling to tomorrow’s field trip will be facilitated. Participants must attend all three parts. Space is limited.
7 - 9 p.m. WSC
