Fires, Karin DIVERSITY of LIFE Nature- Animals,
Nature- Other
Wildlife Educators Coalition (WEC) brings a variety of live, exotic animals to your location and demonstrates some of the amazing variety of life found on this planet. We start with a general monologue about diversity and some surprising facts about life forms. We then go to the live animals, beginning with insects to lizards to snakes to tortoises & turtles. In this part, WEC volunteers carry different types of each species around the room so people can get up close and ask questions. Some of the animals can be touched. Volunteers with hand sanitizer follow. From there we go to our higher level animals--a cockatoo and a variety of mammals, culminating with a fun and educational visit from Maggie, our black-handed spider monkey.

Vanishing Bees, Butterflies and Bats Bees are vanishing from the face of the earth! The Monarch Butterfly is becoming extinct. The saying, “going batty” will be a thing of the past as well. Bats are declining rapidly. Why should we care? Gary Feldman will show you why we need these life-sustaining members of our ecosystem more than you think, what their purpose is, and why we can’t live without them. Learn when the phenomenon called colony collapse started and what is wiping the bees out of existence. What will happen without them? Will our ecosystem and people change? Learn what the impact will be at our supermarkets. Learn how you can keep the “buzz” still humming, keep the butterflies flourishing, and why we all need to go batty to save the bats.

The Native Americans used a hunter-gatherer model for centuries before agriculture was brought to their land.

This program will show you the plants that are in your own backyard that you can survive on, even in winter. Patrons will handle real native plants and learn when, where, and how to locate them.
