Trail Treks: You 'Otter' Know
Thursday, July 24, 2–3 p.m.
You "otter" know about otters! They are playful creatures that hunt waterways throughout North Carolina for food. Discover the world of otters with a story, fun games and a craft you can take home. See and touch a real otter (stuffed, of course!).
Trail Treks: Friendly Snakes
Thursday, August 28, 2–3 p.m.
Snakes are misunderstood animals that are feared by many yet are very important to our ecosystem. Meet our friendly corn snake, Maize, and learn about some of the common snakes on the ATT and why we should respect, but don't touch, these helpful reptiles.
Saturday, August 30, 9:30–11 a.m.
Can a turtle come out of its shell? Do turtles have teeth? How do turtles communicate?
Learn the answer to these questions and many more as we check out some of our shelled friends up close and hike to the pedestrian bridge along the Trail to observe them in their natural habitat. Bring your own binoculars or borrow a pair of ours.
Trail Treks: The Web of Life – Connections in Nature
Thursday, September 18, 2–3 p.m.
