The Moebius Nature Center in Aurora has a great program lined up at the end of May for all you nature lovers and wanna-be nature-lovers as well!
Learn how valuable amphibians and reptiles are and how to identify these backyard friends. You’ll feel very intelligent afterward and be able to dispel the myths and promote the facts to all your friends! For instance:
Did you know…
spring peepers do not climb high into trees, but hunt in low vegetation?
spotted salamanders have been known to live up to 32 years and normally return to the same vernal pool every year?
the common (or northern) water snake is active during the day AND at night?
Right now the frogs are calling from the wetlands serenading their mates.
Salamanders are stretching their legs after a winter of hibernation.
Snakes are seeking the warmth of the sun to begin their season of activity.
There will be plenty to discover about these fascinating scaly and slimy creatures! Everyone in the family will enjoy this presentation by Dr. Jim Tomko.
Hopefully, if they cooperate, there will be some live animals to display! There is no cost to attend this program, but donations are greatly appreciated to help continue our programming.
