Meet some of Grady the Groundhog’s woodland friends or possibly our birds of prey, a Red-tailed hawk and Great Horned Owl! A Park naturalist will explain each animal’s role in our ecosystem, how they came to live at the park and lessons on what we can do to help protect wildlife. Animal Encounters meet at Grady’s Animal Discover Den Mon-Fri and at the Outdoor Classroom Sat & Sun. Afterward, grab a Track Trail brochure at Grady’s Den and take a hike along our Great Woodland Adventure trail with 12 interactive education stations!
Monday, June 20 - Sunday, June 26
We all know honeybees are pollinators, but how about bats? And did you know that birds are attracted to pollinate red flowers more than other kinds of colors? Join a Park naturalist to take a walk through our pollinator garden at Grady’s Animal Discovery Den to learn why pollinators are so important to our world and what we can do to protect them.
