The Center for Wildlife: Raptors, Reptiles & Mammals
Location: Riverton Branch
Audience: Adults, Kids & Families
The Center for Wildlife will be bringing their program, Raptors, Reptiles & Mammals to the Riverton Branch Library on July 12 as part of the Library’s summer reading program.
Focusing on animals that live in Maine, they 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 the groups adapt to our changing seasons? Using live animals and interactive displays, the answers to these and other questions will be revealed.
The Center for Wildlife, located in Cape Neddick, is a private, non-profit organization whose mission is to build a sustainable future for wildlife in our community through medical treatment, rehabilitation, educational outreach, research and conservation activities.
