Mammals of Maine: From Mice to Moose

February 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Chewonki Foundation: Mammals of Maine: From Mice to Moose, Wednesday, Feb 22, 4-5:00pm, in Community Room (upstairs), ages 7+ This exciting and interactive program introduces students to our native warm-blooded vertebrates: Maine mammals. Each participant studies a mounted animal and observes its characteristics, such as teeth, feet, and fur. We use these observations as clues to understanding each mammal’s adaptations, niche, and habitat. A collection of skulls, study skins, and other specimens complements a discussion of adaptations and the role each animal plays in the food web. This program also provides a living example of a non-releasable wild mammal. This program is brought to you by the Merrymeeting Bay Trust Grant.
