Presentations by Audubon Society Naturalists
Did you ever wonder how a camel survives in the desert? Or why Flamingoes have such strange beaks? Answers to these questions and many more will be discussed at two free programs:
March 22nd from 4:00 – 5:30 PM at the Hawley Public Library, 103 Main Street in Hawley, PA
April 21 st from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM at the Northern Wayne Community Library, 11 Library Road in Lakewood, PA.
Children and their parents should arrive ready to have a fun-filled adventure. Refreshments will be served. These interactive programs will explore adaptations of a variety of species from plants and insects to fish and mammals, including humans. “It is really amazing the variety of specialization that species have developed to cope within their habitats,” say co-presenters Jenna Mauder and Katharine Dodge. “Some are structural like the special shapes of birds’ beaks. Some are behavioral like the ‘playing dead’ by the opossum.” The students will explore myriad examples through discussion and games.
