What’s the Buzz in Your Backyard? Spring Lecture #3: Backyard Critters: Furry, Scaly, Slimy

March 23, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

What’s the Buzz in Your Backyard?
Backyard Critters: Furry, Scaly, Slimy

Each spring, The Institute presents a series of related programs. For 2023, the lectures will be on Thursdays March 9, 16 and 23. Our unifying theme is the environment and habitat found in your own backyard, with a special focus on visitors like bees, birds, bugs, and critters of all sorts.

Admission is free and all are welcome.

This final program in a series of three is on March 23.

Everyone with a backyard gets critter visitors in one form or another. Some can be a nuisance and others a pleasure. During this program, you will learn to identify some of the common mammalian, reptilian, and amphibian backyard visitors and their telltale signs, how to handle those unwanted visitors, and ways to safely attract more wildlife for viewing.
