New England’s forest and fields, woods and waters, are all beautiful–but who lives there? During this program we’ll explore the ecosystems of New England and meet some of the animals that make their homes here. We’ll also learn how wildlife use their habitats and connect to the rest of the ecosystem as part of a food web!

New England Natives

Focusing on animals that live in Maine, we will provide an in-depth introduction to the unique differences between raptors, reptiles, and mammals. Do snakes have fur? Do rabbits have scales? Are birds "cold-blooded"? Why do opossums have pouches? How do each of these animal groups adapt to our changing seasons? Using our amazing non-releasable animal ambassadors and interactive displays, the answers to these and other questions will be revealed. This hour long program will connect the audience with these beautiful ambassadors of their species as well as provide their natural and personal histories and empower audience members to help to steward the environment that we all share. Grade Levels: Adaptable to All Ages
