Adult Forum – Field Guide to North American Wildlife


12:00 am - 11:00 am

Event Type


Wildlife is all around us in North America: in the air, on land, underwater. Not only are these animals astounding and fascinating to see, but they’re also more important to our survival than most of us realize.

There’s a fantastic array of native mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and invertebrates that populate the North American continent. All of them play an important role in our ecosystem. As human activity takes a heavy toll on the natural ecosystems we depend on, it’s more important than ever to understand native species and why their survival is so imperative.
