Nature Revealed

You probably know all about the animals that live in your backyard – but what about the ones in your house? There’s a whole ecosystem inside our homes, from raccoons in the attic to tiny jumping spiders on houseplants. Things get even wilder as the creatures get smaller. You won’t believe the strange war going on between villainous booklice and heroic pseudoscorpions in your bookshelf! If the weather permits, we’ll go on a walk right around the Nature Center building to look for some of our wilder roommates.

Wear walking shoes and dress for the weather.
